Locker Room, Entertainment

Dear Punxsutawney Phil,

Dear Phil,

This winter has been particularly rough on some of my friends in the northern states. They have asked that I contact you in regards to your upcoming forecasting event. Please do not see your shadow so that they may be relieved of the heavy burden of winter. Need I remind you that I am a Cajun, and as such I have no qualms about eating a large rodent, as I have dined on similarly sized cousins of yours in the past. I know where you live, so do the right thing.

Your future demise,
Shasta

This was a great post Shasta, good job and thanks to Jess for clearing up the 42 days/6 week issue, that really has had me rattled for quite some time, must be the math.  Now for the good stuff, don't we all want to see Shasta eat that darn critter already?  I do, maybe just maybe we can end this phil crap and get on with or without winter and go skiing, I for one live in SD own a boat and will go fishing.

lol well you'd think - but judging by the way everyone gets so excited about Groundhog Day and doesn't want him to see his shadow, it doesn't seem that way. Maybe people just don't do the math?

typical weatherman junk, kinda like 50% chance of rain, or the whole partly cloudy/partly sunny thing

If the groundhog sees his shadow, we get 6 more weeks of winter. If he doesn't see his shadow, it'll be 42 more days.

Here is just one place I could find this, but it's something my mom taught me when I was younger.

Apparently Groundhog Day is an excuse for many people at my school to go to Punxy and party. I'd join them, but then I'd have to go have Punxy, possibly the crappiest town in an area full of crappy towns.

Must be from eatin' those varmints.

A fun little trick the groundhog day people came up with a lonnnnng time ago - do you remember what I told you about exactly how much longer before spring if he DOESN'T see his shadow? I'll give you a hint...it's not immediately spring

none of this is ringing a bell
