Groundhog Day

Militant Groundhog

It’s Groundhog Day and some of the militant marmots object to being disturbed.

FYI: this is approximately the midpoint between the Winter Solstice and the Vernal Equinox. It is called Imbolc among the Celts, which is why people are interested.

On average groundhogs are right 40% of the time. Flipping a coin has a better average for accuracy. With all of the snow in the Northeast any groundhog smart enough for meteorology will roll over and go back to sleep.

Update: Punxsutawney Phil agrees with me and the polar vortex, six more weeks of winter.
His prediction was backed by Shubenacadie Sam in Nova Scotia, while Ontario’s Wiarton Willie called for an early spring. Quebec’s Fred la marmotte passed away at some point in his hibernation and thus, had no opinion.

Pretty sure that Fred La Marmotte passing away means winter will never end.

That’s just the frosty attitude of Quebecois.
