No such luck

Phil's official forecast as read February 2nd, 2009 at sunrise at Gobbler's Knob:

Hear Ye Hear Ye

On Gobbler's Knob this glorious Groundhog Day, February 2nd, 2009

Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Prognosticator of all Prognosticators

Awoke to the call of President Bill Cooper

And greeted his handlers, Ben Hughes and John Griffiths

After casting a joyful eye towards thousands of his faithful followers,

Phil proclaimed that his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers were World Champions one more time

And a bright sky above me

Showed my shadow beside me.

So 6 more weeks of winter it will be.


Check out groundhog.org for more information.


Apparently some Phil wannabe called Staten Island Chuck in NYC didn't see his shadow, and.....he bit the mayor. So we obviously cannot trust the little rat.

I wondered if I was going to find a Groundhogs Day post and I wasn't disappointed. And yes, lets not trust that other "little rat"!
