Punxsutawney Phil

Yeah! It will be an early Spring this year. Punxsutawney  Phil did not see his shadow this morning in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. The little groundhog came out of hibernation to whisper into the ear of the president of the local Groundhog Club. In "Groundhogese" he must have said, "Nope, I don't see my shadow, sir."

I didn't see any shadows today either since the Alberta Clipper was blowing through all day. It has not stopped snowing.

Phil has been predicting the weather longer than Dick Goddard - 126 years. He has only predicted an early spring 15 times. With an accuracy rate of 39%, we can't really count on the little rodent. We can only hope.
