Punxsutawney Phil made his prediction known this morning. . . .Darn it (see below:

Phil’s official forecast as read 2/2/06 at sunrise at Gobbler’s Knob:

It is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Around the country there are many imitators of me.

In Harrisburg there is Gus who appears on TV
working for the lottery.

Then all around town,
Cute groundhog statues abound.
They all look like me, I found.

Today on the Knob as I’m doing my job,
I don’t like this likeness of me.

It’s my shadow I see. Six more weeks of mild winter there will be.
