So, today is Groundhog Day. I never put stock into the idea of a large rodent predicting the weather. Well, I don’t put much stock in the weather folk on television doing it, either. But, it seems that Punxatawny Phil saw his shadow which means that we’re in for another six weeks of winter.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m okay with winter. I’ll concede that this one is a bit colder than I’d like but again… it’s winter. Cold is what winter does. We’ve been spoiled with milder winters over the last couple of years.
No, Dear Reader, it’s people complaining about winter that bothers me the most. And, besides, winter lasts until March 21. Which, by the way, is seven weeks away. So, it’s ridiculous that we play this game because we will have at least six more weeks by definition and, you know, science!
So, you’re gonna get it anyway, just go and enjoy it. Stay warm, drink warm drinks, get close to those who love you and suck it up!!!!
Okay, rant over.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“This is pitiful. A thousand people freezing their butts off waiting to worship a rat. What a hype. Groundhog Day used to mean something in this town. They used to pull the hog out, and they used to eat it. You’re hypocrites, all of you!” – Phil from Groundhog Day
