Happy Groundhog Day!

MORE WINTER!!! Noooooooo......

At least that's Phil's verdict this morning. But based on how this winter has gone so far, that was pretty much my prediction anyway, even without the prognosticating talents of our fuzzy friend.

PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. - The world's most famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, emerged before chilly revelers in western Pennsylvania on Tuesday to see his shadow, a sign his handlers say means winter will last another six weeks.

Some 12,000 people gathered before dawn to await his weather forecast. They came from as far as Chile and the Netherlands, braving a chilly 18 degrees Fahrenheit to see the more than century-old ritual.

Bill Deeley, president of the Inner Circle of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club β€” and reputedly the only person in the world who can speak "groundhogese" β€” declared that Phil had "seen his shadow" as he has about 90 percent of the time.
