The case against Phil is non-existent. It fails on logical grounds (see DanG's first post) and on scientific grounds. Phil's just doing his thing -- if we can't figure out that we observers got things backwards, that ain't his fault.

On the science side of things, it's a fact -- we cannot (and never will) predict the weather accurately beyond a week. The accuracy falls off dramatically after only 3 days. How can we expect Phil to defy the laws of physics?

I figure the indictment should be against the people who take Phil's predictions serously ;D.

It's about time they dealt with these shadowy young punx.

 :D :D :D :D

It is especially bad when those rogue groundhogs gang up.

DanG you are one fast thinker.  The first thing I thought of to doctor grits with was deep fried groundhog. digin_2

Now I think it only fair that it be Buckeye Chuck in the fryer. 

The original question was not if PA Phil should be blamed but is it any kind of fair play for a Buckeye prosecutor to go after PA Phil when their own furry prognosticator produced the same data set?

Actually whistle pig is not bad if you fix it right .There's a gland under the front legs that looks like yellow fat you have to get rid of though  before you cook it .

Pa. Phil is too fat and tough anyway to end up in the cooker .NB Phil lost his head over  pursuit of female companionship by the sounds of it ,crow food according to Swampish .

I haven't seen any yet but the raccoon are moving .I'd imagine with springtime on the rise they too might have something else on there minds that causes them to go stupid and get flattened out on the road .

Danged ground hogs like to tunnel under my wood piles of unsplit firewood which is not a big deal .What was was one genious that decided to tunnel under my raised bed garden .Ha about 300-400 gallons of water from a hose convinced him to dig else where .One treatment did it .

My Great, Great Aunt used to cook them up.  Pretty good.  She'd tan the hide and cut it into strips for shoe laces.  Seeing his shadow and predicting six more weeks of winter I've always thought was good for us.  From Feb 2nd we could just as well and sometimes do have another 10 weeks of winter.

If you have a westerly or south west facing slope, those early ground hogs will come out because their hole gets the warm sun. They like to lay in the spring sun. They'll eat twigs and stuff about like a rabbit until the greens sprout up.

Coons are out here most of the winter, see tracks along the brooks most of winter. Saw a mink the other day traveling along a stream bank.
Move'n on.
