Six more weeks of winter according to the country's most accurate weather forecaster. Some rodent in a hole.

Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow today and that means six more weeks of winter. S@*#, I just don’t know if I can take many more of these bitter cold 60 degree days. And with all the snow we are not getting it is really not piling up out there. If we do not get some springtime temps in here soon I may commit hari-kari. Why are they celebrating this rodent, in the 1800’s they drug the rat out of his hole and they ate him.

One thing I always wondered. Why is it more winter when the groundhog sees his shadow? I would think that it would be the opposite. The sun is out. Sun equals spring/summer time. I would think it would be logical for a cloudy day and no shadow of the groundhog to mean six more weeks of winter.

In celebration of Groundhog Day, go out and rent the movie Groundhog Day. It's a fact, Groundhog Day is the best movie ever made and it gets better and better every time I see it. You can watch it on Showtime today if you have that channel. Check local listings.

For us I think he predicted 6 more week of rain since I heard on the Monsters that when they pulled him out of his hole he urinated on the dude that was holding him.

That's a shame. I don't know how much of this spring time weather I can handle.
