    Groundhogs/woodchucks are a type of marmot

    When is Spring coming ?

    The annual prediction of how long Winter will last by Phil the woodchuck comes tomorrow in the middle of the afternoon, Moscow time; or about 7am in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania

    Groundhog day

    The annual Groundhog Day weather forecast is coming on February 2nd at @ 3pm Moscow time.

    The groundhog's shadow will determine if there will be 6 more weeks of Winter, or not; this is a much more reliable method than using a pig's spleen.

    Actually, check this out...
    Look at the calendar and see that the nominal bigining of spring is March 20th.
    That is 6 weeks and 5 days after February 2nd. So that means that if the groundhog sees his shadow... he may yet run back and hide in his burrow, but winter still ends sooner than it would otherwise. By almost an entire week!

    I believe the lines were:

    - Phil, are you going to the groundhog dinner?
    - I had groundhog for lunch. It wasn't bad. Tastes like chicken.
