Wacky Wednesday Wisdom

Celebrating 125th anniversary of ground hog predictions!

"This is pitiful. A thousand people freezing their butts off waiting to worship a rat."
            Bill Murray in Ground Hog Day.
(Official ground hog idol)
"This is one time where televison REALLY fails to capture the true excitement of a large squirrel predicting the weather. I for one am very grateful to have been here."  Bill Murray in Ground Hog Day.

Around here, we call them Woodchucks.

I live less than an hour from Punxy and I've never gone to the, uh, festivities. Even Bill Murray couldn't convince me it'd be fun to stand out in the dark and cold with a few thousand drunks waiting to see some guy in a top hat snuggle a groundhog/woodchuck/whistle pig.
