The groundhog cometh

  This Sunday, February 2, we will find out if an early end is in the cards.  That’s the day when the nation’s top weather forecaster, whose accuracy over the years is even better than most professional meteorologists, will make his annual prediction.

Among  much fanfare Punxsutawney Phil will stick his head out of his burrow at Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, take a look around and give the country the news. 


  According to folklore, a cloudy day means an early spring.  On the other hand if the day is sunny and Phil sees his shadow the winter weather will continue for six more weeks.


  Here in Georgia all eyes will be focused on General Beauregard Lee at the Gwinnett County’s Yellow River Game Ranch in Genereal Beauregard Lee at his mansionGenereal Beauregard Lee at his mansionLilburn.  His predictions have been so accurate over the years that he has been recognized twice by the National Weather Service.  He also has two honorary doctorates…a “DWP” or Doctor of Weather Prognostication and a “DSG” or Doctor of Southern Groundology. 


Winter weary Americans are hoping for some good news.
