Do you believe in the groundhog’s ability to predict when spring will come?

“No, I do not. I just don’t trust the fate of spring to a small rodent. If it comes early, it comes early.”
“Oh yes. Six weeks is six weeks, and it’s going to be here anyway. He’ll be right this year.”
“No. It’s a great tradition, but a very bad way to predict the weather. If the weatherman can’t get it right, how can a groundhog?”
“No. I don’t think it makes any difference, but I am usually interested to see if he sees his shadow and see if he’s right.”
