Punxsutawney Phil......
« on: February 02, 2014, 11:38:59 AM »
That loveable prognosticating rodent has seen his shadow.

Six more weeks of this truly, grueling, "global-warming" madness..... >:(




More winter! Groundhog Punxsutawney Phil sees shadow



Punxsutawney Phil, the world's most famous fuzzy forecaster, popped out of his burrow Sunday morning and predicted six more weeks of winter, much to the disappointment of the crowd gathered at Gobbler's Knob in Punxsutawney, Pa.


According to folklore, if it's cloudy when the groundhog emerges, the critter will leave his burrow, signifying that winter will soon end. If it's a sunny day, Phil will supposedly see his shadow and, frightened, retreat back into his burrow, and winter will continue for six more weeks.

Speaking of Ground Hog Day, the movie is one of my favorites.

Living the same day over and over and over and over again.........quite a concept.

I think there was some actual spirituality in the film, especially the part with Phil the "god" Conners.....

Pennsylvanians,like most Americans, don't need too much of a reason to party I guess.

Gatheirng together outside in the cold watching this little fat rat climb out of his hole is as good a reason to drink as anything I guess.

Seriously!  They've got nothing better to do on a Sunday morning?

Let's lighten up folks. No one is worshipping Baal or preparing a fatted calf. It's a silly small town old Pennsylvania German folk custom popularized by a 1950's Chamber of Commerce idea that morphed into a mid winter day that brings folks together for a silly party in an otherwise dull, boring ,small western Pennsylvania town that's lost in time.

Well now, those German-descended peasants might get silly over an oversized rodent peaking his head out of a hole in a ground.

But their damn sure not dancing around  having an  drunken orgy  while their worshipping it.

Just wondering, though, since you have the inside scoop and all.......has Phil ever lost it and bit anybody?

I mean all those cheering hordes down there outside his residence might make the most affable rodent a little jumpy. ;D

Let me clarify: it may have been three inches of snow but the snow was on top of sheets of ice. Over a million people tried to leave a major metropolitan area pretty much at the same time.

I was thinking about this earlier today. After the fairly temperate weather yesterday (40s with light rain) I was surprised to wake up today to find a layer of ice covered with 3-4 inches of snow, and flurries still falling. The road conditions were not horrible, but a little more caution than normal was sensible. As I was on a bus on the highway we passed a car going very slowly with a driver who was being timid and over-cautious. The bus driver was so annoyed that she honked the horn as she sped past them. So I got to thinking, we don't get a ton of bad weather in PA, but we get our fair share, and yet there are still people who seem to overreact. Then I thought of what it'd be like in an area that got 1/10th of the bad winter weather that we get. Maybe only 20% of people in those areas would overreact and drive terribly, but 20% of thousands of drivers could quickly turn into a disaster, with gridlock or even something quite dangerous. So even though 80% of the people might be fine, yet because the 20% could cause problems for everyone, a lot of stuff going on with schools, businesses, etc. might grind to a halt. With that in mind they may simply be quicker to take precautions, just to be on the safe side. I'm sure people in other areas think the same thing of we in PA, who will call off school for conditions that others would find trivial or perfectly fine to travel in.

We got 6" of snow Friday Night into Saturday Morning.  We got about 2" more yesterday and last night, and now it is well below 0.  We are supposed to get down to -15 tonight (-25 with wind chill) and -21 Wednesday with a wind chill of -40.  I have to wait for a bus so that I can get home.  I am not looking forward to it.

Always go local.  It makes for a fresher stew.

No they didn't get ahead of it, but up until Tues morning the forecast was for a light dusting in Atlanta with heavier snow further south . Also consider that snow equipment is a low priority. The storm came fast and everybody left at the same time. Remember Katrina? NOLA had a week's warning, all highways led out and there was still a massive traffic jam.
