Geocache Description:

This is the second geocache in a series of holiday themed letterboxes. It's placed not far off of the Multipurpose Trail in LaTourette Park. 


Please be conscious of muggles! Do not remove the stamp it stays with the geocache, thank-you and enjoy!

Groundhog's Day seems to be slightly more special to Staten Islanders. Our little borough is home to one of the most famous weather forecasters in the country; Staten Island Chuck! Whether you believe Charles G. Hogg (superior to Punxsutawney Phil) can accurately predict six more weeks of winter (boo!!) or an early spring (sweet!) it's clear that this holiday is just a little bit more special on our island then it is elsewhere.

Chuck predicts an early spring!

Congrats to DawnAIC for FTF, Looking4Secrets for STF & dumbfounded1 for TTF!

Team Early Spring!: Chris Saves.

Team More Winter!: ukipiper, SynDaLog.
