Groundhog Day

Tomorrow is Groundhog Day, and like many of you, I am going absolutely crazy, anticipating whether Punxsutawney Phil will see his shadow.

If the groundhog sees his shadow, it means that we are doomed to live through another six weeks of this living hell winter. If he doesn't see his shadow, boom, automatic spring.

I don't know about you, but I sure could go for an early spring this year. I am literally sick of winter. I had to stay home today, I'm so sick.

My groundhog prediction:


Of course, I have a bias, because I want him to not see his shadow.

Unfortunately, Phil has a tendency to see his shadow. Of his 112 past predictions, he has seen it 98 times. Last year, he didn't see his shadow, but the seven years before, he saw it.

In terms of his prediction accuracy rate, I see vary wavering figures. According to Wikipedia, he is correct 37 to 90 percent of the time.
