Phil and friend (AP Photo)
Today’s date: March 14. Today’s temperature in the shade of my backyard: 79 degrees F.  Puxatawny Phil’s shadow: seen on Feb. 2. Forecast: six more weeks of winter. Days since forecast: 41.  Forty-one divided by seven-day weeks: 5.86 weeks.

Not bad, Phil 

Now please don't dump a foot of snow on us next week.

Got my nose in books, so I missed this earlier. Great shot of Phil. Warm here too. Dianne

I'd be more inclined to give serious consideration to Phil's prognostications if he was allowed to emerge on his own, on any day of his choosing, and not drug out by some person.

...should have added, ...not drug out by some person just because it was a certain calendar date. Nature doesn't typically follow such specific timing.
