Phil Says "Six More Weeks of Winter!"

big_bill_in_groundhog-731047 Did you know that all that “prognosticator of all prognosticators” stuff from the movie Groundhog Day is for real?  My girls were asking me what Groundhog Day is for and I was telling them about the whole “groundhog seeing his shadow” bit, so I went to the official website to see what the verdict was, and here is what I found:

Phil's official forecast as read February 2nd, 2009 at sunrise at Gobbler's Knob:

Hear Ye Hear Ye

On Gobbler's Knob this glorious Groundhog Day, February 2nd, 2009

Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Prognosticator of all Prognosticators

Awoke to the call of President Bill Cooper

And greeted his handlers, Ben Hughes and John Griffiths

After casting a joyful eye towards thousands of his faithful followers,

Phil proclaimed that his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers were World Champions one more time

And a bright sky above me

Showed my shadow beside me.

So 6 more weeks of winter it will be.

Awwwwww, shoot.

I remember seeing Groundhog day in the theater and I was really tired, so I kept falling asleep. Whenever I woke up, I swore I was seeing the same thing I had already seen and I was so confused!
