Good deal. If he didn't I did not want to drive all that way to sqaush that furry beast because I am tired of winter already and need to see some better weather.

Someone needs to sit down with Phil and explain to him that global warming has ruined his gig. Then, tell him to move to Minnesota, get a diagnosis as a victim and live off the system.

Data from the Stormfax Almanac's data shows that Phil's six-week prognostications have been correct 39 percent of the time.
Phil does a shade poorer when you check his performance against actual weather outcomes since 1969, when the accuracy of weather records is less in question, said Tim Roche, a meteorologist at Weather Underground. From 1969 on, Phil's overall accuracy rate drops to 36 percent.
Amazing. I would even trust a weather guy before trusting the groundhog. Even a coin flip would give you better accuracy.
