We're on the rocky bottom of an air ocean.

When I was little, I would stand on my head and feel like I was going to fall off the Earth through the clouds and into space.

Cool, man.

What do you call a groundhog's laundry? Hogwash

I always know that winter is over when I see the neighbor lady sunbathing topless.

Was checkin' on some o' them LTE's & political threads & the like. Whoo, it's Groundhog Day over there! They just keep saying the same stuff back & forth. Kinda like congress.

I would like to get Ronaldo's take on the origins of St. Patrick's Day. It sems to have evolved into a perverse celebration of hedonism.

I do remember a former 6news anchor that used to say "April showers bring ME flowers". He messed a lot of stuff up. The guy was really confused, and not very bright.

If there is a hog in the ground I hope it is a Luau. Please pass a Mai Tai. Not sounding like winter to me.

Why are you asking me? Do I look like a Groundhog?

I agree with Rick. Maybe not snow specifically on Feb. 12, but right around that time. It seems like it always snows a few days either before or after Valentine's Day.

I refuse to believe in the meteorological prognostications of a rodent.

autie (anonymous) says… "It will be weather whether it is winter weather or whether it is nice winter weather. It is all winter weather, just not very bad winter weather whether you like it or not."

Whether I like it or not, winter weather makes me wither . . .

rantor should show up for this one. An opportunity to be clever based on his avatar and troll at the same time.

Sometimes......it is better not to speculate. Sometimes......it is better not to know what the future holds. Sometimes......it's better just to hang on and enjoy the ride. For some that ride might be better with their eyes closed while deafening screams are coming from their mouths I prefer to keep my eyes open and smile through the noise ...and the blood.

Groundhogs are just a glorified rodent closely related to squirrels.They often carry bacteria that can cause lethal pneumonias.Groundhogs also suffer from other diseases, among them the hepatitus B virus. Ticks, lice and fleas are also an issue. The nasty thing will surely cast a shadow when dragged from it's burrow due to the idditts with lights and cameras surrounding it. Doesn't matter. It is what it is.

Roe is grumpy this AM . Gotta deal with roofers today. Only one speaks 'Merican and not too gooder. The price we pay to get a decent price. That too is what it is. Guess I could call my neighbor Kolbach to come check 'em out. After they're done. But before I write the check. Aw hell, they gotta eat too. Just get 'er done. Then get off my lawn.

(The guy is a friend. If I didn't give him a rash of cr@p he would think I was mad at him. Then he would burn me out.)

Every day is Groundhog Day for me.

I think we’ll get winter weather AND the weather will remain mild.

I gaged 0.07" precip. for January. I'm going to crank that back to 0.06 as I believe a high wind gust of 41 mph on Jan. 26 shook the mast my weather station is mounted on and made the rain gage tip erroneously. It be dry hereabout.

Have "iron eyes" on the first ground hog. It will probably fall back into its' hole - dead. Poor thing.

I think it will get a bit colder.... - Odeo
