The Groundhog Report !!!

In case you have not heard, the Groundhog weather reports are in.

And folks in the North and West, who are currently experiencing the aftermath of the 2000 mile blizzard, will be verrrrrry happy to get the Groundhog Report.

It seems that Punxsutawney Phil and General Lee did NOT see their shadows.

 So, great news --

There will NOT be 6 more weeks of winter. 

But, not so fast !!!

Guess what, there also seems to be a Chattanooga woodchuck !

Who knew?

His name is Chattanooga Chuck. 

And, alas, he DID see his shadow.

So, according to Chattanooga Chuck, the Chattanooga area will have 6 more weeks of weather. 

Hmmmm. Perhaps someone one should let him know what his cousins saw.

But, yes, it is true, the sun did shine in Chattanooga on Groundhog day.  So perhaps all those signs of spring (robins, early green leaves on bushes, etc.) were just a false alarm. 


However, for the rest of the country, the reports by Punxsutawney Phil and General Lee are good news indeed.

But, back to the Chattanooga woodchuck.  If his existence is news to you as it was to us, HERE'S THE LINK
