Six more weeks of Winter! (Wait - what winter? It was 63 degrees yesterday!)

 Happy Groundhog Day, everyone! :)

The Verdict:

Pennsylvania's iconic groundhog has "seen" his shadow, meaning we're in for a long winter.

Groundhog handler Ron Ploucha smiles as he holds Phil after he made his prediction on Feb. 2, 2012.
The world's most famous groundhog emerged from his burrow and allegedly saw his shadow this morning, indicating that we're in for six more weeks of winter!
Well if the record breaking 63-degree day we had yesterday ( 02/01/2012) is any indicator what the rest of February and those six weeks will be like -
 I'll gladly take it!

I was outside in a t-shirt - it was unbelievable! :)

This movie was and still is a classic in the Yarmosh family.
Bill Murray is hilarious and there are so many great lines from the movie...too many to list.

Here are a few of my favorite clips:

If you haven't seen it- I am sure it will be playing on several movie channels tonight.

Movie Synopsis:

Phil Connors is the arrogant and egotistical weatherman for local station WPBH-TV Pittsburgh. He has disdain for those with who he works as well as for his viewers. But he has the most disdain for Groundhog Day held in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, which he is to cover for the third time in his career, this year with Rita and Larry, the station's new producer and cameraman respectively. Phil wants to get in and out of Punxsutawney as quickly as possible, but a snowstorm forces the threesome to stay an extra night in town after the Groundhog Day festivities. When Phil awakens the next morning, he is experiencing what he thinks is déjà vu. In reality, he is experiencing that Groundhog Day in Punxsutawney all over again. The same happens the following day and the following. As Phil relives that same Groundhog Day over and over again, he goes through a myriad of highs and lows. But as he comes to the realization that Groundhog Day may be his fate for eternity, he also comes to other realizations, such as that his actions have no long term consequences, but that knowledge, especially as it relates to Rita, can be a powerful and dangerous thing. But he is given opportunity after opportunity to get the day "right".

Check your local listings and tune in tonight :)
