Groundhog Day

“You want a prediction about the weather,
you’re asking the wrong Phil.
I’ll give you a winter prediction:
It’s gonna be cold, it’s gonna be grey,
and it’s gonna last you for the rest of your life.”
Phil from the movie, “Groundhog Day”

It’s Groundhog Day everyone ! Actually, before 1993, when the movie, “Groundhog Day” came out and became such a big hit, I never paid much attention to this day.

I’m pretty sure everyone will watch this movie at least once today, if not several times.

This twenty-two year old movie, is so chock-full of funny lines, you gotta watch it more than once. It’s classic Harold Ramis humor.

Whether you live in Southern California or Punxsutawney Pennsylvania, everyone around the world will be watching the 129th prognostication by Phil. How often is Phil correct? Well they say he’s 100% accurate, most of the time. Whatever that means.

According to legend, if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter weather. If he does not see his shadow, there will be an early spring.

In my opinion what we really need is an East and West Coast Phil. If we did have two Phil’s, my bet is for us West Coast residents, Phil won’t see his shadow. But for those living on the East Coast, Phil will definitely be seeing his shadow on Groundhog Day.

Shine On.
