I hope Buckeye Chuck is correct. I think he used to work on Wall Street doing securitization of mortgages.

I've never understood this. If he doesn't see his shadow then that means it's cloudy and gray, and likely cold, and if he sees his shadow it means the sun is out and likely warmer, yet the predictions are opposite - no shadow, it'll be warm sooner, and if there is a shadow (hence the sun is out) it'll stay colder longer.

Ground rats are more accurate than the weather readers on TV - not that that's saying much...

I didn't see my shadow this morning either. What does that mean? It was dark outside?

Stupid groundhog.

Why does Marion have this event? It's a copy of Punxsutawney Phil, which has been done much longer than anyone else. Marion should drop it and find something original.

Stupid groundhog.
This means don't try doing something that only a groundhog has the skills for. I'm not a bird so I haven't tried to fly. I'm not a monkey so I don't throw poop. Leave this one skill to the groundhogs. It's all they got.

Apparently he forgot where he lives. Spring comes to Ohio by the end of April, sorry folks still have a long way to go. Good thing next week is my last week of it and heading south for good where yes it does get cold, but you only have to deal with it for a few days here and there not months.
