Sorry the URL should read groundhog.org.

I have not had my morning coffee.

I don’t know. I feel sorry for all those groundhogs. They get taken out of their nice warm homes and then......

Can’t say I’m surprised about the six more weeks of cold though.

pretty sad when I have more trust in Phil than global warming scientists.

Look at this photo and tell me what's wrong.

[clue; dark, wet, umbrellas]

It's totally overcast, here.

No sun.

No shadows.

Who’s going to predict the weather when the Phil, ground hog croaks of old age? My calendar tells me there is six more weeks of winter, will that be a sufficient long prediction?

Only six more weeks of winter. CRAP! No more 70 degree days. I ain't looking forward to those 110 days.
Well, I guess six more weeks is better than an early Spring.

No. But here is one that might make you a bit happy. Remember when Staten Island Chuck Bit Mayor Bloomberg in 2009?

Gen Lee should be tweeting the event in a few minutes. He’s on Central time, thus he’s an hour behind Phil .

Staten Island Chuck also says six more weeks of winter.

It’s too EARLY/cloudy for a darn shadow. Where did they check for the shadow? England?

“Look at this photo and tell me what’s wrong.”

A predawn overcast rainy gathering of several thousand nerdy cult followers in serious need of a life!

Someone inside a nice warm house. seated at the kitchen table with hot coffee & the Sunday paper in front of them, is going to learn far more about the future than that crowd.

True, that.

I’m gonna guess booze and food will be involved later so maybe that’s why they flock.

Since there are 46 days remaining officially, this is good news delivered by a brainless rat that simply wants to be left alone. This is one of the oddest customs in the country.

I know. But it’s kind of fun. It’s Sunday morning, I was lonely and it was nice to chat with you all before the Super Bowl and Puppy Bowl.

I hope everyone has a great day, regardless whether we have an early or late Spring.
