Oh Punxsutawney Phil, why would you do this to me?

For those who have not found out yet, P. Philly (my new nickname for him) saw his shadow today, which apparently means that we will now have to suffer through a long winter. I don't know about you, but I do not want six more weeks of winter. No more snow, no more cold weather, no more short days and no more slipping on ice. Come on, Punxy Brewster (another new nickname, I'm still working out the kinks), you know that you want the warmer weather too!

According to the always reliable Wikipedia, Funky Punxy (ok, i'll stop now) is correct with his prediction only 39% of the time. So we have that going for us.

Below is a classic scene from the movie "Groundhog Day" starring the always-funny Bill Murray, a movie that everyone should check out if they have a chance. (Disclaimer: I do not condone the eating of groundhogs; it gives can give you paranoia to the point that you are afraid of your own shadow.)
