Groundhog day: Jimmy vs. Phil

Ok, so I'm from Sun Prairie, WI, which claims to be the Groundhog Capital of the World. He was not featured in the film Groundhog Day but he does have a better track record than Punxsutawny Phil. Here are some pictures from today's celebration. In one of them, he looks almost demonic. I don't know whether I'd let that face get close to my ear, 'sall I'm sayin'.

Phil disagrees with him this year. I saw a news item once about Phil; apparently he's an angry little guy. His handlers have to wear chain mail gloves.

(Disclaimer: I don't think the rodents actually predict the weather. They just provide an excuse for a silly party with moose milk.)
