Pleased by Punxsutawney Phil's Prediction?

Pleased by Punxsutawney Phil's Prediction?

Now that the prediction's over, I can't say I'm pleased about the prospect of six more weeks of winter . . . which in SF translates to more and more rain. Boo. Nevertheless, this famed fella was pulled from his stump yesterday by the top-hatted, tuxedoed John Griffiths, a member of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club Inner Circle. While I caught the festivities later on, a crowd of 40,000 spent a night of revelry awaiting the sunrise (and Punxsutawney Phil!) in Pennsylvania's Gobbler's Knob. After you share how you're feeling about his prediction, test your groundhog knowledge in our fun quiz.

I was sort of hoping that I would open this post and read that Dr. Phil predicted that Britney would be away from the public for another six weeks. ;)

I'm in Florida. We've had a few 60-degree days. I would love to have a little bit of cold weather!

Our groundhog in Ontario said we're having an early spring, so I'm thrilled! Although I heard their predictions are only right like, 30% of the time anyway.

For some odd reason my friends and I drove to Punx last year to see this spectacle--I will never go back but it was an experience! People are CRAZY for this groundhog! And, I of course wish Spring would start TODAY!

Why listen to Phil? His little rodent prognostication skills are screwed up. General Lee in GA has a better track record and he said spring comes early this year. ;)

I agree with grrlyrebel. Why wish everything away? Enjoy the seasons!! Summer will be here soon enough making us all miserable.

I live in Northern MN, and as long as we get buckets of snow in the next couple weeks I'm fine with it. I have to be able to snowmobile lots more before Spring. If there's no snow, then bring on the heat.

I know I'm in the minority but I enjoy the seasons and I don't feel like I've had enough winter yet :)

The things people sponsor. A groundhog to tell us it's going to rain more. I hope kids enjoyed it.
