Punxsutawney Phil Is My Hero

Micah's homework for Monday was to watch the news for Punxsutawny Phil, the official groundhog of the United States. So we watched him on youtube.
See his declaration for this year here.

Here's a sampling of Arizona Winter. (eat your heart out, Idaho!)

Six more weeks of
Snapdragons, geraniums, petunias, pansies

Green lawn, pleasant evenings, warm days
leaves budding, popcorn popping, orange blossoms perfuming

Thanks, Phil.
Epiphany #30--Six more weeks of Arizona winter make sixteen weeks of Arizona summer tolerable.
If I just weren't so allergic to February, then we could even sleep with the windows open.


  1. If you say so! No really, the flowers are LOVELY, but seriously, could I at least get a 70 in the temperature? I'm just saying...sweating in February is NOT cool!

  2. My dad was born in punxsutawney. Fun little fact.

  3. what the heck? who names their child *coughgroundhogcough* punxsutawney? that is so weird...some groundhog parents need to stop looking at those weird baby books...

  4. Hey I think I work Monday night. I never get my schedule till Sat. morning for the following week.
