Winter is still here!!!
Well when this squirl heard the news that the groundhog see it's shadow he announced this quote "Winter sucks!, it's gonna take till July to thaw out my nuts!" That's because the world's most famous groundhog saw his shadow Monday Feb the 2nd, predicting this already long winter will last for six more weeks, Yikes! Then again according to German superstition, if a hibernating animal casts a shadow on Feb. 2nd the Christian holiday of Candlemas - winter will last another six weeks. If no shadow was seen, legend said spring would come early.
Since 1887, Phil has seen his shadow 97 times, hasn't see it 15 times, and there are no records for nine years, according to the Punxsutawney Groundhog club. All I can say is there is six more weeks of skiing!! And of course six more weeks to thaw out the squirl's nuts!!lol!
