Groundhog Day!!

D.J. #1: Okay, campers, rise and shine, and don't forget your booties 'cause it's cooooold out there today.
D.J. #2: It's coooold out there every day. What is this, Miami Beach?
D.J. #1: Not hardly. And you know, you can expect hazardous travel later today with that, you know, that, uh, that blizzard thing.
D.J. #2: [mockingly] That blizzard - thing. That blizzard - thing. Oh, well, here's the report! The National Weather Service is calling for a "big blizzard thing!"
D.J. #1: Yessss, they are. But you know, there's another reason why today is especially exciting.
D.J. #2: Especially cold!
D.J. #1: Especially cold, okay, but the big question on everybody's lips...
D.J. #2: - On their chapped lips...
D.J. #1: - On their chapped lips, right: Do ya think Phil is gonna come out and see his shadow?
D.J. #2: Punxsutawney Phil!
D.J. #1: That's right, woodchuck-chuckers - it's...
D.J. #1, D.J. #2: [in unison] GROUNDHOG DAY!

...for which I have crocheted a groundhog. Allegedly for my cousin, who is stalks an entire groundhog family, but we'll see if I remember to get it to her in the next 5 years.

I'm submitting it for Muggle Studies, which has an option to "craft a Rav approved project that leaps." To prove that groundhogs actually leap, I decided to see if I could find a photo of a leaping groundhog/woodchuck, and found two:

This pretty much proves that you can find a pattern for ANYTHING on Ravelry, and photos of ANYTHING on the internet, if you get creative with your search terms!
