Rise and Shine, Campers

Pennsylvania's most famous groundhog has delivered his annual weather prediction. Punxsutawney Phil's handlers announced Friday that the rodent saw his shadow, predicting six more weeks of winter. At 7:18 a.m., just after sunrise, the rodent emerged from his lair to the cheers of thousands in the crowd. Those cheers turned to groans after the animal's weather forecast, which came amid a winter that has seen record-breaking freezing temperatures across the U.S. Legend has it if a furry rodent casts a shadow on Groundhog Day, Feb. 2, expect six more weeks of winter-like weather. If not, expect spring-like temperatures. Last year, the furry rodent "predicted" six more weeks of winter.

Here in South Florida we're wondering what he means by "six more weeks of winter." When was "winter?" We really didn't have any "winter" this year and we have had "winter" in many previous years.

Why are we getting a long term weather forecast from a jittery, inconsistent, reddish brown rodent?

"Coldest month of the year" here started off at 88F. Winter isn't coming ever again to Southern California.

Similar to farmers' almanacs, I like this folksy American tradition.
