In case you forgot, Saturday was Groundhog Day. And for the 116th time, PUNXSUTAWNEY PHIL got dragged out to look for his shadow and make a prediction on the weather.
--Well . . . not the original Phil, obviously. Groundhogs have life spans of about 10 years. Being "Punxsutawney Phil" is kinda like the Pope . . . they just slide a new one in there whenever the previous one dies.
--Anyway, this year, Phil did NOT see his shadow, which means an EARLY SPRING.
--And it's only the 15th time in 116 YEARS that he hasn't seen his shadow.
--Unfortunately, he's fairly unreliable as a meteorologist. According to the StormFax Weather Almanac, he's only correct about 39% of the time. This really is our dumbest holiday.
