ABC: Groundhog Day 2013: Will 'Punxsutawney Phil' See His Shadow?

This weather-forecaster is probably living under the shadow of his ancestors who for the majority of the years predicted six more weeks of winter since this tradition took place for the first time in 1887.

The statistics are not in the rodent's favor; 99 times it saw its own shadow as opposed to only 16 times when it did not. The mathematicians among you already figured out by now that 9 years are missing.

Apparently, those years are not recorded which could mean that the groundhog refused to come out, there was no groundhog handy, or it was raining cats and dogs and adding a groundhog would be overkill.

Either way, it is Groundhog Day all over again. The poor critter probably is as nervous as can be and may suffer from some bad flashbacks, whishing it could change the course of history by doing it all over again.

It can't change the past, but we are not vengeful. We are giving it chance, after chance, after chance, to make up for it in hopes it will do a better job this time. I can't blame the poor animal for treading on eggshells. I would be afraid of my own shadow too.

Oops, I forgot. I am!
