Ground Hog Catastrophy Ahead?

Here it is January 31st and the weather forecast is 4" tonight and then another 12" or more snow Tuesday night thru Wednesday night! So, that being and the excess of snow in PA, is Punxsutawney Phil even going to be able to find his way out of his burrow?

(You are welcome to click on the photo above to get a copy of a computer wallpaper if you'd like! I got it from a wallpaper sharing group. Obviously SHE isn't Phil being she's gathering nesting materials and looks to be quite round.)

His (PPhil) prediction for 2010 was, "...As the sky shines bright above me, my shadow I see beside me. So six more weeks of winter it will be."

For this year, 2011, does he need to even try to find his way up or do we need to get up at daybreak to get the prediction?

You can visit here to see how you can earn a badge which is only possible on Feb. 2nd! One of the requirements will be to go outside and scream "GROUNDHOG" during the appropriate time. You don't even need to go to Gobbler's Knob to do it. You can now earn your badge using the net and a moment outside!

You can also visit to read some Punxsutawney Phil lore and past predictions for several past years.

In ending, MY prediction is he won't see his shadow so Spring will get here early. Now I need to know when we will get a few days warm enough to start melting the snow that is about to be dumped upon us! Spring might come early, but the melting days won't come fast enough IMHO! I'm also glad tomorrow is February 1st! Another step closer to Spring (and mud season)!
