This is pitiful. A thousand people freezing their butts off waiting to worship a rat. What a hype. Groundhog Day 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 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.

Meanwhile, Ohio has their own groundhog that also said early Spring - and what is he getting? No attention...

I know it was in jest, but yes, the sentiment from "nattians" will be to put it to death... and if they are from Hamilton, it will then be served with BBQ sauce...

Speaking as a resident of Saskatchewan, where we're still stuck due to the TransCanada highway being STILL closed due to winter conditions, I wish to add Wiarton Willie as a co-conspirator. Death to the lying groundhogs! Death to the false prophets! Let rodent blood be the price of rodent sins!

People like this always crack me up.. they're pissed cuz they listened to the groundhog and actually MADE PLANS based on this? Nostradamus laughs at their lack of vision and gullibility and astrologers everywhere are calling for the head of Miss Cleo. Next time, listen to the tree, he knows better than they...reminds me of the joke where the guy goes to a whorehouse, slips a hundred bucks under the door, and demands to get farked.. knocks on the door an hour later and asks where his money is...

Doesn't look like its going to be warm any time soon.  Calling for some more snow next week.

The groundhog must be dyslexic. Last year he predicted 6 weeks of winter, and temperatures were above normal. This year he predicted an early spring, and it was anything but here in Cleveland. WE got 2 inches of snow this morning, and the temps are hovering around 30 degrees.
 
2013-03-22 10:46:08 AM  
It's not the poor groundhog's fault. Old Man Winter tricked him.

Your honor, I'm going yo prove through testimony that my client was lead through false data. I shall also prove, through several witnesses, that the character of Mother Nature, cannot be trusted as she is known to be a whore. How can my client be held responsible for predicting the future when his evidence is coming to him from the local floozy. We intend to fight these accusations and clear my client of any wrongdoing.

Heard the prosecutor on the news this morning.  He sounded so serious. He played it extremely straight and was so dry with his delivery of the indictment to the news media and asking for the death penalty that it made me crack up in the carpool line.  Kudos to him for having a sense of humor about the shiatty weather!
 
2013-03-22 11:41:15 AM  
No worries.  In about 4 weeks it will go directly from upper 30 degree highs to 102 degree highs and then stay there until mid November.

I'm expecting it to go from 30 to 90 and 100% humidity overnight with terrible thunderstorms and tornados in Xenia because everyone hates Xenia.

Meanwhile I'm putting off cleaning out my trunk because it's too damn cold out.

You'd have to live here to understand. I think in Ohio, we're all mad we didn't come up with the groundhog schtick first or that the Phil made his town more popular than one of our small towns.

And people here follow the groundhog. And believe the damned groundhog. Even though he is never, ever right. And it's ok if he predicts more winter and Spring comes early. But it is a downright sin and a lie for him to say its going to be an early spring and we have the continuous bouts of winter weather that probably won't end until May.

Honestly, I'd though about it off and on for a few weeks. The farking groundhog lied. I thought I was the only one that felt that way. Obviously not.

Ohio is a weird farking place. Just know that beneath the humor, there are probably more people than you could possibly believe who actually did remember the groundhog prediction, were hoping it might be true and have been duped by the bouts of sunny, but cold clear days, hoping they mean spring is close, only to find snow outside their door the next morning.

It was only a matter of time before people started saying shiat like, "Groundhog, my ass," or "fark that groundhog." Even those people probably think a lawsuit is stupid. But I bet those same people think we should, "Find another groundhog, fark Phil."

Off to eat a sammich now. Forget this weird rant ever happened. It's Ohio. It's why there should really be an Ohio tag.

cuz it's a weird farking place

Being from Marion, that place could be swallowed by a sink hole and the world would be better off. Those people biatch about the lack of "good paying jobs", yet the greed of the community has driven out every single good paying jobs. These people are stuck in 1983 and the community won't ever move forward.
