The Groundhog's Day
Happy Candlemas, everyone! It's 43 degrees here this morning and the sun is a nice golden color, with n'ary a cloud in the sky. The garden has flooded once more with all the snowmelt.
So naturally, everyone's favorite weather hog, groundhog Phil of Punxsutawney, PA has predicted another six weeks of winter. Everything about Phil is here.
Poor Phil, I hope they let him crawl back into bed when the party's over. Otherwise, he'll be asked to take a side in the big Presidential throw-down. It might be hard for a simple groundhog to get back to sleep though, once he realizes its also Mardi Gras weekend.
