In light of Purple13′s singing Hamster image, I thought I’d post my own rodent in the form of a guerilla Ground Hog…actually, that kind of looks like a Prairie Dog. Hmm… Yesterday was Groundhog’s Day over here. I’m not sure how many of you are familiar with the practice, but every February 2nd we like to pull a sleeping rodent from its den and have it predict the weather. It sounds weird, but the rodent is usually correct in his forecasts 50% of the time.
The nexus of Groundhog’s Day festivities is Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania home of Punxsutawney Phil. He comes out once a year and lets the people know whether or not there will be six more weeks of winter. This year, he’s forecasted six more weeks of the cold stuff for us.
Do you think you’ll have six more weeks of cold weather? Or for those living in warmer climates, six more weeks of warm weather?
