Yes, it is time for the world’s most famous rodent to fixate the nation with his shadow-phobic response. It appears that good people of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania have rejected the demand of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) to free Phil into the wild and get a robotic groundhog (which presumably would detect a shadow through sensors).

It turns out that Phil is not much of a weather prognosticator: he has been right only 39 percent of the time. That is reassuring since this morning the giant rodent predicted six more weeks of winter, here.

New Yorkers insist that the only true weather predicting groundhog is their own Staten Island Chuck with a 77 percent accuracy rate.

  1. Oh well, that was my futile attempt to post Melanie singing the very apropos “Groundhog Day” you would either love it or hate it -there is no in between when it comes to Ms. Safka’s music!

  2. Nal,

    A long, long time ago, just before the first rains set in after the first full moon entered the zodiac sign of Aquarius two days after the full moon in Leo. However this was after the great glacial ice cap melted in the southern Hemisphere. Phil predicted that it was going to be a short winter on the eastern seaboard state of PA. The weather was too severe to predict in other areas of the loose confederation of states soon to be known as the US of A.


    The answer to your question depends upon the procrastinator indices used and the variable interpolated exponential formatting utilized in this same type or similar scenario.

    I hear that they have some global warming programs unutilized at this very moment.
