Breaking: Punxsutawney Phil fails to see his shadow !!

Early Spring despite the Polar Vortex !!

CNN right on the dime with rebuttal saying he is usually wrong anyway !!

Why would MSM/CNN jump on this ?

Could it be because the global warming thing is BS scientific hogwash ? 🤣

Can't have groundhogs defiling settled science roflol 😎


Thousands of people gathered Saturday at Gobbler's Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, to watch a famous groundhog deliver his highly anticipated forecast.
Punxsutawney Phil emerged from his burrow around 7:30 a.m. ET and did not see his shadow, predicting an early spring for us all.
"Faithful followers, there is no shadow of me and a beautiful spring it shall be," a member of Phil's Inner Circle read from the groundhog's prediction scroll to the cheers and applause from the crowd.
As the legend goes, if Phil sees his shadow, he considers it an "omen" of six more weeks of bad weather and heads back into his hole. If it's cloudy and he doesn't, you can put away that winter coat sooner than expected.
But of course, his predictions aren't always correct.

Well, not to boast from my polar-vortex-free neck of the woods, but I felt spring in the air yesterday!

I have daffodils and creeping daisies in bloom... buds on the roses... new iris bulbs breaking ground... the yellow bells are starting to leaf out again...

It's looking awesome here!!!

It's the 21st century and we're still relying on a burrowing rodent to tell us what the weather will be like.

You know what, I live around Punxsy as we call it.

I can handle your jabs at me, my terrible looks, lack of intelligence, early male pattern baldness, and all around unlikeableness.

But I put my foot down at making fun of Phil!

Also my dog got up early today and chewed up garbage because I didnt take it out.

I was hoping for six more weeks of my wife not yelling at me, but it appears me getting in trouble is just around the corner.

Lol look at your order and understand it's based upon the necessity to hide scientific secrets hundreds of years ago.

Do you know when you're looking like a fool or does it spill out unawares?

The myth of the groundhog’s ability to forecast winter dates back centuries. It’s linked to the early days of Christianity in Europe. On Candlemas Day (Feb. 2), if clear skies prevailed, it meant cold weather ahead. The tradition then changed in Germany where the weather forecasting was linked to the hedgehog which, if it saw its shadow, would mean snow into May.



But here’s the thing: if a groundhog comes out of its burrow, it’s not looking for its shadow. It’s looking for a female. That’s right: we’ve been watching a groundhog’s dating habits.


Balzac Billy Is still sleeping. Buried under snow....
The other two are at odds with each other


There’s conflicting predictions from Canada’s two most famous forecasting groundhogs, with Wiarton Willie heralding an early spring while Subenacadie Sam claims there will be six more weeks of winter.

Sorry, Phil is awesome.

You on the other hand look terrible, are not intelligent, losing your hair and are generally unlikeable.

I'd love to see you start a thread on this winner of a premise. Just give me a heads up when you start it so I can come and beat you about the head and neck with some facts.
