Groundhog Prediction

Today was Groundhog Day, not that the people of Pennsylvania noticed. Apparently, the forecast is for six more weeks of football coverage and celebratory conversations.

[I realize that this suggests a lack of sophistication, but Groundhog Day is my favorite movie. It has what are for me all the elements of a great movie: humor, an absurd plot, redemption of the hero, love, philosophy, and something sort of like time travel. Because of the movie, I actually notice the event.]

I really wish the groundhog could/would predict that winter ends in one day. I'm so tired of wind, cold, snow and especially ice.
