    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.

    What a kooky tradition. Those folks gotta be bored.

    Wonder why peta has not chimed in... seems like they are forcing that poor groundhog into weather-forcasting servitude.

    Yea... those 60+ degree days are really making this a harsh winter...

    (I love snow as much as anyone, but it doesn't look like it's the year for that)

    Phil\'s little cousin says \"Bring it on!\"

    There isn't anything he can do about it, anyway!

    I took that pic in a wildlife refuge, although I had all the rifles in the truck with me, at the time, it wasn't a good idea to pop one there, it's right in front of the Welcome Center! If you're ever near Valentine NE, make sure to stop in at the Ft. Niobrara Wildlife Refuge, east of town. They have elk, buffalo, PDs, burrowing owls, all manner of interesting things. We saw some mulies and coyotes there, too, along with whitetails, although those aren't stocked! and Merriam's turkeys are all over the place. You can drive right among the animals, they have cattle guards along the roadways, so you can get great pics.
