Punxsutawney Phil, Groundhog Weather Dude, Predicts An Early Spring

By Robert Paul Reyes

"`An early spring for you and me,` is this year`s prediction from Punxsutawney Phil, the premiere Groundhog Day forecaster.

With an estimated 35,000 spectators watching him Saturday morning, the groundhog, or as he is known to his followers,  `the seer of seers` - - did not see his shadow."



It`s been frigid this winter in Virginia, as I look out my window no sunlight streams in and snow covers the ground.

The meteorologists on TV forecast snow and more snow, but what the hell do they know?

I`d rather hear what the adorable meteorologist, Punxsutawney Phil, has to say. And the cute as a button groundhog predicts an early spring!

I need to go to Lowe`s and buy some grass seed, and a new mower. But I think I will wait until the temperature climbs a little bit above freezing.
