Happy Groundhog Day!


Groundhog.org Watch the groundhog at 6 a.m. CT

According to the National Climatic Data Center, research "shows no predictive skill for the groundhog during the most recent years of this analysis...It really isn't a "bright" idea to take a measure such as a groundhog's shadow and use it as a predictive meteorological tool for the entire United States."

Great post by J.B. Elliott about Alabama groundhogs! Who needs a yankee groundhog when we have "Alabaster AL" and "Vinemont Velma"?

OK, I made up that one about Miss Velma....

One of my favorite movies........

Phil may not be accurate but he's cuter than a forecast model. And I know he's a Yankee but he's the only REAL Groundhog. I just think having other groundhogs is like saying, "Hey, let's have our own Santa. We'll call him New York Nicholas or Kansas City Kringle."

I love that movie, too. "Bing!"

My dad said that Satterfield said he would lose his job if he was as inaccurate as the GH. The GH is much cuter than the models (computer)....
