Groundhog Day didn’t reveal any more about the weather than local residents already know — fruit trees are budding out, and there’s likely to be one more freeze coming.

But the day did bring other insights. Groundhog Day is when San Marcos High School students leave the campus to visit local shops and learn about the real world of business.

This year some 22 businesses including the San Marcos Daily Record participated, and all shadow shops and students were treated to lunch by the San Marcos Chamber of Commerce.
