Groundhog Day. Heh. I always figured the rodent Pennsylvanian Phil was no more than a publicity stunt for tourism, etc. Not to mention a media obsession that helped lazy journalists avoid another day of work.
Comes WeatherBell meteorologist Joseph D’Aleo to confirm it: “According to StormFax Weather Almanac, Phil has been right 39 percent of the time since 1887.” Pfft.
Early spring? More likely six more weeks of winter in the NE. Here in Centex, rodent or no rodent, our winter is almost over. As always.
