Before today’s post actually begins this news bulletin. The original groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, is predicting six more weeks of winter. This is not good.
I was really hoping for only a month and a half more of winter.
The local New York groundhog, Staten Island Chuck, was unable to make an accurate prediction because our new mayor dropped him.

Long time readers will have seen the first version of this object before.
I first saw this on February 16, 2011.
The last time I saw it was yesterday, 2/1/14.
I have a feeling that if I come back in thirty years it will still be here in some fashion or another.
