Today I received my first Groundhog's Day Card
I have always been a little annoyed that we let some arrogant, egocentric, eastern marmot on the other side of the continent prognosticate the length of our seasons. My jubilation was augmented today when I learned that the Pacific Northwest has it's own groundhog, Billy Balzac, who resides just 8 km north of Calgary. Today, Balzac saw his shadow.
Come on Puxaphony Phil, we all know there is going to be at LEAST 6 more weeks of winter. You can't soothe us westerners with your "empathetic" lies.
