Pap would go back to town and cause massive amounts of ruckus and drank till he passed out. He completely disregarded the fact that his son is all alone in the cabin.
Ground Hog day is a movie about a weather man that unenthusiastically covered the Punxsutawney, PA ground hog day affair for four years in a row.

Another example in “Priscilla And The Wimps” is in paragraph 26 with, “Well this is where fate, an even bigger force than Priscilla, steps in. It snows all that night, a blizzard.
