Talking The groundhog is a fraud

I would just like to go on record and say that Punxatawny Phil, the gopher, groundhog, whatever he is should stick to digging up worms and eating bugs because predicting the freaking weather is not his forte!!

Early spring my foot!!

Stay warm and enjoy your first full spring weekend Missouri!! Some of you are - or are - going to see more snow.

Trying to get out of "sunny" CA in January we got stuck in the traffic after they closed the I-5 grapevine due to blizzard conditions with 90 mph winds...4 hours of bumper to bumper freeway traffic to get from Bakersfield to Mojave. Ugh!

WOODCHUCK (GROUNDHOG) STEW

Might I suggest cooking him over an open fire - that way you can stay warm at the same time.

Respectable tornado there Cali

^^^^^^
Nasty destructive rodents. I suspect if you saw one close up you wouldn't want to be cooking it up unless you were starving and had no other prospects. When I kill them I leave them where the vultures can find them.

The purple Martins have been back for a week or so. Spring is here, trees and bulbs are blooming. A little snow is no big deal unless we get back to single digit temps. I don't see that happening.

Translation: Groundhog is not a fraud but he still is a terrorist to building footings/foundations and will be shot on sight or trapped and destroyed.

What would the proper caliber be for dispatching such a terrorist?
Would a simple .22 longrifle be suitable, or should one up the power to say a .223 which is our military's round of choice for terrorists. I guess you could always just introuduce the Woody to a 12 guage too....hmmmm #4 or maybee BB, double 00, naw that would be messy..........

Obviously you haven't met too many Missouri ground hogs Cali. Come armed my friend.

Smile Punxsutawney Phil Deserves Benefit of the Doubt

It is my considered opinion that each of us who have weighed in on this critical topic must give Punxsutawney Phil the benefit of the doubt once again in this instance. He has an absolutely unblemished record to date of forecasting late winter weather that should be the envy of the nation's most prestigious meteorologists.

After my deepest analysis, and even factoring in the fact that my own corner of the country, Left Coast Valley Center, California, Expert: Tornado hit Santa Rosa | PressDemocrat.com got hit by a small tornado in the middle of town earlier this month, I conclude that the President of the Groundhog Club Inner Circle misinterpreted the proclamation given to him by Punxsutawney Phil, leading him to read from the wrong scroll when he should have said that he DID see his shadow.

That can be the only possibility. Please be safe on the roads back there, and out here too!
