Do You Think Phil Saw His Shadow?

First off, I think it's little crazy that people would put all their hopes in a little fur ball with beady eyes. According the his handlers they believe that this little animal predicted an early spring. Me personally, I would really like to see better weather, because for some reason the weather has a lot to do with the kind of mood a person could be in.

Even though I know we need the rain, and the snow, I'm not a big fan of it; I hate dreary weather. It puts a damper on the way I work when I'm at home. I usually like to curl up on the couch with my favorite blanket, and space heater and watch a good movie or read a good book.

So for some years now the weather channel has made such a huge thing into what this little fur ball has to say. Even the town in which this animal lives has gone completely nuts over this animal. they made a movie about this town with this little fur ball, they hold ceremonies and events for this Phil the little fur ball. They even hold interviews with people talking to the little fur ball. How crazy it that, this has became a major money grabber for this little town in Pennsylvania.

As much as I would like to believe that Phil the furry little animal can predict the future, is absolute a hard pill to swallow. No one could appreciate some sunny weather with the temps in the high 60s than I could right now. It is so cold outside with no sun in site. I just want to go back to bed and sleep for another two days and not have to go and shovel snow from in front my door. Oh how much I long for better weather, how about you?

I don't know if I could do six more weeks of cold weather, but honestly what choice do I have? As far as working from home in bad weather goes, well you do what you have to do to get the job done. A couple of more trips to star buck will have to do. I wonder what Chattanooga Chuck has to say about all this? He's another fury little animal that people seem to think can predict the weather. If these creatures can predict the weather, then why do they have disagreements? I remember last year Phil said we were going to have six more weeks of winter and Chuck predicted that we were going to have an early Spring? So if it were true that they could in fact predict the weather, why are they not on the same page with their predictions? It really makes you think if this is just another hoax.
