    I am in full agreement. The rodent must die.

    What say you?

    Actually, he just informed me that my hub traffic will reach a new Year 2013 high this coming week. So I'm granting a reprieve. He better be right...

      Quite frankly, I've been wondering if anyone has ever seen the lamb everyone refers to; "In like a lion out like a lamb"? A lamb, really? I turned off my pellet stove and put away my winter coat a week before spring, anticipating this mythological lamb. Unfortunately, keeping with tradition that damn lion showed up again this year and the pellet stove is back on and the winter coats are back out. Can you blame the groundhog from lying? Don't shoot the messenger!

          I'm just glad that in Ohio it's no longer "In like a lion in March, Out like a lion in April..."

            Ha, ...so have you ever seen this lamb they speak of?

              Ah yes...once I glimpsed a passing tail feather of it, right before another snow storm.

              Usually though, my part of Ohio's March is "In like a grey shroud and out like a grey shroud."

                Hehe, I think that New Yorks confused a ball of snow with a little lamb's tail many many years ago, for I am not convinced we have ever had a true lamb-sighting here.

    It's spring and we're having another snow storm.  Did I say it's spring?  Third snow storm in a month.  I don't like winter.  I read the Ohio posted article.  I don't put faith into groundhogs, nor Google.  I'm annoyed my traffic dropped somewhat and that it's snowing.

      ...traffic dropped and it's snowing.
      What is this world coming to? :-)
      I couldn't agree more, perhaps we should start a support group?

          Ha ha, Patty, they may not truly understand us; we may run the risk of getting kicked out of the group :-(
          It was the lamb I tell you, the lamb!

    Hey! Haven't you ever gotten up in the middle of the night, in the dark, to go to the bathroom and missed the pot? Give the little sleepy dude a break. I'm an Ohioan and think he should be spared. Unless he's a Steeler's fan. Then, off with his head!!!!!!

      It appears that Google has come through. The groundhog may live.

        I am pissed off by the groundhog but I understand him (he is a he), still snowing here but it will be warmer starting tomorrow!

    Groundhogs are liars.

    Exhibit A: my spring flowers.

    If the snow isn't gone by Easter, I'll be hunting groundhog on that day instead of going to church and eating candy. Better tracking in the snow.

    Personally, I hope this is all a long drawn out April fool's joke!

    I'm not going to blame an animal who has no say when he is dragged out of hibernation for some silly ritual...
