Groundhog Day Fill-in-the-Blank

Fill in the blanks in the passage with words from the word bank.

Every February 2, crowds gather at Gobbler's Knob, in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. Burrowed inside his heated simulated tree trunk, a groundhog, named                                         , is about to step into the limelight at about 7:25 a.m. once again. The gates open at 3:00 a.m., followed by live entertainment, music, and a pre-dawn fireworks display that helps to ignite (hopefully not literally!) the crowd gathered in anticipation of Phil's forecast. The awe-inspiring fireworks are set to lively music, which is just what the crowd generally needs on a cold rural                                morning. Phil makes the most celebrated weather                        of the year, usually around the crack of               . Has spring sprung when Phil emerges from his                    and doesn't see his                   ? Or, should he                    back into his burrow for six more weeks of winter                     if skies are clear and               ?
