Six more weeks of winter!

I can’t think of a better way to re-emerge from my latest blogging hibernation, than with a video of a recently-hibernating groundhog having a chat with a bunch of grown men in funny hats.

Yes, legendary weather forecasting groundhog Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow [2] and has decreed that winter will last for another six weeks in the northern hemisphere. It’s no wonder that PETA launched a loopy objection [3] to the use of a groundhog the other day and suggested replacing him with a robot (their reasoning included something about how we’ve replaced dinosaurs with robots and people still come to see them)…not enough global warming for them!

Seriously though, does that mean another six weeks of heat down here in this hemisphere?
