This morning I watched (with my usual skeptical attitude) that overstuffed rodent Punxsutawney Phil emerge from his hole and claim we're getting six more weeks of winter.
The famous groundhog made his appearance at 7:25 a.m. EST via a livestreamed event because of COVID-19 restrictions.
This is going to be hard for some people to read but... Punxsutawney Phil is wrong!
One of the reasons I know this is a much younger (and more alert) groundhog, Staten Island Chuck, contradicted Phil and called for an early spring this morning.
The other reason is self-explanatory: there's no way that an overweight groundhog can predict the weather with Global Warming changing everything almost daily.
Meteorologists and TV weather forecasters are lucky if they actually predict the weekly weather report. Six weeks out? Forget about it.
If, by some chance (a real tiny one) Phil turns out to be right, then he needs to be livestreamed daily in lieu of incompetent scientists and weather forecasters on TV.
