Some clerk in the Department of Weather must be trying to make a phool out of Phil. Less than 24 hours after the celebrated groundhog predicts Winter Is On the Way Out, here comes (more) snow. Now don’t get me wrong: our local prognosticating rodents (the well-fed ground squirrels and Who Me, Hibernate? Eastern cottontails) made the same, albeit untelevised, claims. Yup, all agree that spring is right around the corner…
…but, first, a little more of the white stuff for your 2012-2013 shoveling quota!
For more phascinating phacts about Phil, et. al.
NOAA (U.S. National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration) did a fun/wonky chart showing Punxsutawney Phil’s record vs. actual temps.
Weather.com compares the famous and not-so-famous rodents and their claims.
