groundhog's day and the shadow of doubt

shadow of doubt 2
According to this morning's News & Record, our local groundhog, Woody, a resident of the Natural Science Center, saw his shadow yesterday...thus casting doubt on the predictions of his more famous cousin Punxsutawney Phil in Pennsylvania.

So, with winter storms reeking havoc on half the country, who do you believe...our local, down-to-earth marmot, Woody, or the more popular prophet, Phil?

well from what i read Punxsutawney Phil has only been right 39% of the time!! those don't seem like the best odds!! I know i just really want spring to come early so i was happy with his prediction!! :)

Unfortunately, I'm going with Woody. As you said the current weather is a good indication that spring is not around the corner. That Phil is overrated if you ask me ;)

Does being outnumbered count? In Canada, our Schubenacadie Sam and Wireton Willie both declared that spring shall be early! Sorry Woody; we Canucks are with Phil.

I'm praying spring is early and last all the way until August!!

Eheh! Love the cute groundhog day drawing. :-)
I never really believed in this (Gasp!! ;-) Sorry Phil & Woody.) but I do find it a funny and amusing ritual. It's a good reason to celebrate during this cold time of the year!
