Yay for Groundhog Day!

I didn’t know I was particularly bothered about Groundhog Day before, but apparently it is something that makes me keep an eye on a Twitter search to see what Phil decides.
I am ascribing this to the fact that over the past year or so, I discovered marmots were ridiculously cute, and of course, Groundhog Day was the first Film Watch movie I covered. So, now I want to go to Punxsutawney and see what it’s all about.
I mentioned the celebration to someone at work and they didn’t know what I was talking about. I looked at them incredulously, as I couldn’t believe it was possible not to know about it. They looked at me incredulously, as I tried to explain forecasting the weather based on a groundhog’s shadow. It’s actually hard to do without sounding like a crazy person.
Still, Phil has done his stuff, and we’re going to get six more weeks of winter. I just hope the snow stays away.
