Punxsutawney Phil's Prognostication on YouTube

Happy Groundhog's Day Eve! Here's the link to a video of Punxsutawney Phil's weather prediction from last year, just click on the video link to see the action. Starting tomorrow morning, February 2, 2008, the Punxsutawney celebration and live groundhog cams will be webcast from
For groundhog books at BHPL, just type "groundhog" into the Aquabrowser catalog and you will find lots of children's books to read including Punxsutawney Phyllis who is described this way in the catalog annotation:

"Although she can predict the weather much better than the boys in her family, no one thinks that Phyllis the groundhog has a chance of replacing the aging Punxsutawney Phil when Groundhog Day's official groundhog retires."

I'll go out on a limb here to make a prediction of my own; I think Phyllis proves everyone wrong, don't you?

The Republican Fiction Project has also pointed out that Phil has predicted an end to global warming.

Wow, what a groundhog! I checked out and confess I can't quite see where it's coming from. It's so sarcastic and snarky, it goes full circle. Is it left, is it right or is it just weird? Whatever, Phil is one awesome critter.
