From the KFOR news here in OKC just now: “More winter weather is on the way, and a groundhog may be to blame”.
REALLY? Whoever wrote that should be clubbed immediately.
“News” people, I have a hot flash for you: A GROUNDHOG, OR WHETHER OR NOT A SHADOW IS INVOLVED, DOES NOT PREDICT WEATHER. Winter or otherwise. Every 02 February, every “news” show it seems runs a “story” about the groundhog that predicts the next six weeks of winter weather.
Why this stupid superstition persists is beyond me.
