So What’s Your Verdict, Phil?

Today’s Groundhog Day! Earlier this morning, a bunch of guys in black top hats dragged Punxsutawney Phil outta his safe, warm tree stump. You know how it goes: if His Blorpness saw his shadow, it’s six more weeks of winter. Otherwise, it’s an early spring. The result? Hang on to your snow shovels.

AMC is showing Groundhog Day today: 10am, 12:30pm, 3:00pm and 5:30pm.

There’s a lot going on today, if you happen to be in the area of Gobbler’s Knob. (Just east of Punxsutawney.)

41 Days ‘Til Groundhog Day!

“This is Major the educational groundhog at Second Chances Wildlife Center in Kentucky, says Sender-Inner KB. “You featured him earlier when he was just a wee guy. Also- Here’s a video of him eating his Christmas cookie (actually a healthy treat for him but he’s none the wiser! Photo by Brigette.”)

ResQte Of The Week I: Major Nomming Action!

This IS “Major.” He’s an orphaned bebeh groundhogster, who was saved by Second Chances Wildlife Center in Goshen, Kentucky. (Watch for FLOPPING PAW ACTION in the video, too.)

Got Some Friendly Groundhogs In Edmonton, Eh?

This Furry, Friendly Chubbular is “Raisins.” Or, maybe Gordon. So, it seems a CBC reporter was out jogging, and came across a woman on a bike ride who was feeding the groundhog raisins, nuts and Smarties candy that she was carrying in a plastic bag. She named him (or her?) Raisins.

Others say this might be a local groundhog legend named Gordon. More deets here, OK then?

Phil Has Spoken!

It’s Groundhog Day! Earlier today, Punxsutawney Phil was yanked outta his warm burrow at Gobblers Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. U know the drill, either he sees his shadow or he doesn’t…either we get six more weeks of winter or we don’t.

It’s bad news, People. Unless you run a ski slope.

Showtime, Punxsutawney Phil!

03-15-07_more-winter-on-the-way_originalIt’s precisely 7:00am ET at Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania– home of The Royal Exalted Chubbular One, AKA Punxsutawney Phil. Is it six more weeks of winter, or is spring right around the corner? Let’s go to the live video! Phil’s appearance is scheduled for 7:20am ET.

Here’s Phil’s FB and Twitter.

Dateline, Punxsutawney PA. Phil did NOT see his shadow, so it’s an early spring! Break out the Coppertone! (But not in Gobbler’s Knob- it’s 11 degrees! Go back to bed, Phil!) PS- AMC is running Groundhog Day all day 2day, just sayin’.
