    Ground Hog Day!

    What's your weather?

    We are about 12*F,, cloudy with light snow showers. To be near 0*F most nights this week, with flurries for the next few days.

    So, what does that say for March?

    ...is one of my favorite funny movies. You know, Bill Murray has never even been nominated for an Academy Award? not even nominated. How he get snubbed for movies like Groundhog Day, What About Bob, Stripes, Caddyshack (which he did almost completely unscripted), and Ghostbusters?

    Punxsutawney is right up the road from me (around an hour and a half, actually), we've never been up to the festivities but it used to be a three day drinking party up there, back in the day! They've since made it more family friendly (I believe its a dry event, now). Thought about venturing up there tonight but decided not to, it'd be a really long day and I'd end up sleeping all day tomorrow!

    Right now its 20°, partly sunny and flurries here. That little bastage will probably see his shadow, I'm hoping anyway.........;)

    Bill Murray has to be some sort of town hero to Punxsutawney. he's done more to improve the Chamber of Commerce's bottom line than anyone.
