    This Wednesday is the 125th Celebration of Punxsy Phil making his prognostication.

    Have you ever been there?

    I would like to go someday.

    I could care less.

    I've run over a bunch in the truck and it's a hell of a bump. Maybe next time I'll stop and pick it up and make some soup.

    We are lookin' at at least a foot of snow and Wiarton Willy would be a :censored2: groundhog to even bother.

    Just over a three hour roadtrip and I have absolutely no interest in going. Saw the movie and that was enough for me.

    The spirit and fun of Groundhog Day has caught on in many parts of the world including Canada.
    Some of the country’s most famed groundhogs include Ontario’s Wiarton Willie, Nova Scotia’s Shubenacadie Sam, and Alberta’s Balzac Billie.
    In the US, Punxsutawney Phil is the most notable groundhog weather prognosticator.

    So, I got Balzac Billie tomorrow, see what he does ! :)

    This is the only Balzac I know. I bet he'll predict the weather if you asked.

    The first ground hogs are already out :

    Shubenacadie Sam and Punxsutawney Phil agree, Spring is near! Come on Wiarton Willie, we'll see you in 10 minutes...

    Balzac Willie is out in the west, will be a while for him yet - but, I think he's most important - he's responsible for all those famous "Alberta Clippers" !

    UPDATE : Good news : Wiarton Willie just seen his shadow, too ! 3 for 3 so far ! :)

    You got it Bass-ackwards...... NO SHADOW = early spring.


    The weather-forecasting rodent failed to see his shadow upon emerging from his hibernation

    Whatever, I didn't bother to know what they need to see or not see. I just know they all predicted early spring ! Sorry, my mistake.

    Kinda hard to see a shadow when they are in the middle of a winter storm blizzard - not fair ! LOL

    My official reporter from Punxsutawney just checked in and told me the weather was really a mixed bag. Rain, sun, thunder, lightning and hail within 1 hour! Phil also predicted a Steeler win in the Super Bowl.

    I'm still waiting for Balzac Billy.... if he does see his shadow, then you might as well take the other 3, and de-skin them, and make some warm winter gloves out of them !

    It`s nice to see you admit at least once that you just ramble for the sake of it with little regard for accuracy or even being correct.

    4 out of 4 now, Alberta's Balzac Billie didn't see his shadow, either.
    No more Alberta Clippers for the US Midwest :)
