Curse you, Phil!




Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow this morning, predicting six more weeks of winter.







Maybe we'd get better luck with Punxsutawney Bill?


Seems they have records of the groundhog's shadow-seeking. It might be an interesting research project to compare temperatures in the years where Phil sees his shadow to the years when he doesn't.

Maybe the groundhog is the Willard Scott of the animal kingdom? (Though, we suppose, Willard Scott is technically the Willard Scott of the animal kingdom . . . .)
