Let's toast to world peace and check in on Phunkytown Phil as I like to call him. The rest of the world knows him as Punxsutawney Phil, but I know him to be a very phunky little rodent. According to his dating profile, Phil is about 22 inches long and weighs 22 pounds. He's 2 inches longer and five pounds heavier than an average groundhog, making him a strapping specimen of a groundhog! The deal is supposedly that if Phil saw his shadow and ran back into his home this morning, we would have 6 more weeks of winter. But he didn't! Hurray!!! Early Spring! They've been partying at Gobbler's Knob since 3 a.m. and that crowd gets wasted and rowdy, poor Phil!


Happy Groundhog Day to you, and Happy Birthday to Devin Ivy!
