Not All Groundhogs Agree

by Venomous Kate

Fine, so Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, thus predicting 6 more weeks of winter. (As Kim reminds us, we were going to have six more weeks of it, anyway.)

But not all groundhogs agree.

Take the one that lives in my yard, for instance. Yes, the very same groundhog (woodchuck) I’ve been battling for years now. He didn’t see his shadow this morning. According to the myth, means we’re going to have an early Spring.

Of course, I wouldn’t put too much stock in that. The groundhog died last night after a neighborhood dog got a hold of him.

  1. I always thought that if the groundhog saw his shadow, it’d be 6 more weeks of winter, but if he didn’t, it would only be 42 more days of winter.

    I’m sure I got it wrong.

  2. I think we have to look to one of the subrules that covers when the groundhog itself is, in fact, a shade.

  3. yea we have the other famous groundhog here in Georgia but I really dont watch what the outcome is
