    It is going to snow today. But only 1-2".

    Ya but look what 2 inches did to the Atlanta area. In UT 2 inches every couple of weeks is a walk in the park and just enough to cover up all the yellow snow.

    Up here if he see his shadow it is 6 more weeks of hard winter, if no shadow then it is just 6 weeks of the normal winter weather heading for spring. We have Wiarton Willy, don't know what his forcast was but over in that area they have been under a state of emergency for the last week . Roads closed and 12 foot drifts. No self respecting ground hog would even poke his head out.

    Will Prairie Dogs work? They did not see their shadow yesterday, but then I don't think they came out of their holes either.

    We're almost as far south as you can get (120 miles north of the tip of Texas), but it was in the 80's yesterday.

    Well, that's probably better than our local weathermen.

    Goodie goodie for PHil!! One look at our weather yesterday had me convinced we are in for the long haul. Have to figure out how to get into the training area today!! I would settle for 30F and see some grass!

    Want to know about pain, I got pain! I paid my favorite pro-trainer good money to take my newest girl down to Texas to continue her training. They are a bit north of Dallas...

    Cold weather has been the rule. He is still training, but not what any of us planned on...

    When somebody shoots the darn rodent, send him to me....I will cook him up and feed him to my dogs....except for the one still in Texas

    Don't shoot the messenger.

    Phil is just tellin' it like it is. He's just calling a spade a spade.

    Is it just me or is Phil bizarrely tame? I think at about 55 secs in his handler gives him kisses.
