This is pitiful. A thousand people freezing their butts off waiting to worship a rat. What a hype. the groundhog down in Janesville is just about as accurate as the typical weatherman...wrong wrong wrong. Early spring...yeah we're facing the biggest storm of the whole stinkin' winter...10 to 12 inches predicted for the next 24-36 hours. Knowing the way the weather works, It'll be clear enough for me to drive to work tomorrow, but snow enough that it'll take 2 hours to get home.
"Well, it used to mean something in this town. They used to pull the hog out, and they used to *eat* it. You're hypocrites, all of you! You have a problem with what I'm saying, Larry?"

"This is one time where television really fails to capture the true excitement of a large squirrel predicting the weather."

"You want a prediction about the weather, you're asking the wrong Phil. I'll give you a winter prediction: It's gonna be cold, it's gonna be grey, and it's gonna last you for the rest of your life."

UPDATE: 8:37am: Snow's not here yet, but apparently it's still on the way, and we're still going to get dumped on, although the forecast is now for 7-10 inches, rather than 10-12. Still pissed at the groundhog though.
