So the GROUNDHOG predicted an early Spring. This shows how much we believe in our beloved weather forecasters- We are taking advice from a GROUNDHOG. (After yesterday's fiasco, might not be so farfetched)
The interesting thing is that if he had predicted six more weeks of winter that would put us at about March 16. In all my years living in OHIO, I have never gone from March 16 to Spring. So earlier than that and we will have Spring?? NOT LIKELY. Does he mean a fluke warm day, then snow the next week for up to a month?
If you’re from the North, you might remember this happening when you were in High School. That fluke day of 70 degree weather for people in the Snowbelt in January, felt like 90 degrees. We would break out the shorts and mini skirts, and start to make plans. For some reason it seemed to occur while my parents were out of town on their annual vacation away from the kids. Back then house parties were similar to the kind in Sixteen Candles- loud, large and lacking parental guidance. Ah the memories…
Back to Puxy Phil – I don’t need him. I have his long lost family members living under my porch. His brother Bucksnoplenty Bill knocked up Earline and she had six babies. She raised them under our porch all summer long and at the end, she kicked those babies out. (This is a TRUE story) She is now probably knocked up by Bill’s ex-best friend, Hadsomany. So far NONE of them have even come out to sniff the air let alone forecast our weather. Unless, they were the culprits to the overblown forecasting of the Paralyzing storm we didn’t just have.
Should Phil really have his own DAY, let alone a movie named after him? Why did Phil Connors keep reliving the same day over and over?
Was he really EVER friends with Ned Ryerson? Answer me that, Mr. Groundhog….
For lack of anything better to say, I thank you, Groundhog.
