do rodents really know?

as demonstrated last year 'mr. groundhog day' doesn't really have the handle on the weather that he thinks he does!

Phil's official forecast as read 2/2/08 at sunrise at Gobbler's Knob:
Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
On Gobbler's Knob on this fabulous Groundhog Day, February 2nd, 2008
Punxsutawney Phil, the Seer of Seers, Prognosticator of all Prognosticators, Rose to the call of President Bill Cooper and greeted his handlers, Ben Hughes and John Griffiths. After casting a weather eye toward thousands of his faithful followers, Phil consulted with President Cooper and directed him to the appropriate scroll, which proclaimed: "As I look around me, a bright sky I see, and a shadow beside me. Six more weeks of winter it will be!"


now i ask you ... how many weeks has it been since this prediction?? answer: many more than 6 ... more than half again as many ... almost twice as many!!

I won't tell my son about your ungratefulness! He keeps asking for snow to play in. We've had a bit down here but it melts as soon as it hits the ground. tsk, tsk!

It's 10:00 and I think we have 5-6 inches. Blah!!! I'm annoyed. Wasn't the Zoo last saturday just heaven? What a tease that day was.
