Punxsutawney Phil To Emerge On Wednesday For Groundhog Day

Every February the famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, emerges from his faux tree stump and predicts whether or not we’ll have six more weeks of winter. Yes, the change of season depends on whether or not the little guy sees his shadow.

The environmentalist in me always hopes for some more cold weather. Our governments are fighting climate change with what seems like paperclips and string, so any snow storm or sub-zero weather should have me smiling.

This year, I’m feeling a little selfish. In New York, we’re currently experiencing our fifth snow storm in three weeks. The Midwest just got smacked down with snow. I’ll admit, a part of me is rooting for an early spring.

So, Ecorazzi readers, what are you hoping for? Cold weather to refreeze those ice caps? No more snow? Perhaps you live in a sunny place like Los Angeles and this is a moot point for you?

Anyone siding with PETA and rooting for the folks over in Punxsutawney, PA to let little Phil go??
