    Phil Says Six More Weeks of Winter!
    Phil's official forecast as read 2/2/06 at sunrise at Gobbler's Knob:

    It is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    Around the country there are many imitators of me.

    In Harrisburg there is Gus who appears on TV
    working for the lottery.

    Then all around town,
    Cute groundhog statues abound.
    They all look like me, I found.

    Today on the Knob as I'm doing my job,
    I don't like this likeness of me.

    It's my shadow I see. Six more weeks of mild winter there will be.

    The Cincinnati groundhog came out of his burrow this morning and saw the shadow of a .17 HMR.

    Winter has been cancelled.

    PS, we need a new groundhog, the last one "retired"

    What's a matter here. OHIO don't have polecats? Or y'all just don't know southern talk? LOL. I once had a girl from NJ ask me what a nightcrawler was because several locals used to put up signs that said nightcrawlers for sale. She thought they were something mean that came out at night and crawled. She probably was surprised we didn't walk around barefoot and pregnant too.

    CY, tell me you know what a polecat is. :crying:


    In the past few years, I've heard some of those reports for the ground hog day fiasco to say you should go by the one in your area. well if that's the case, I'm going with Beauregard out of Atlanta. He said spring is on it's way. I figure he is the closest one to me. LOL
