Buckeye Chuck and Punxsutawney Phil Are In Agreement!

Sigh…Six more weeks of winter is what they predict.  Both have been wrong before so there IS hope!!!  Read on…

“The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration lists Groundhog Day predictions since 1988. Only six of Phil’s last 30 predictions were correct, the NOAA reported.  That’s a 20 percent accuracy rate.  Last year Ohio’s own Buckeye Chuck also saw his shadow and predicted more winter. Here in Cincinnati temperatures for February and March stayed above average. But if you are going to pick a groundhog prognosticator, you may want to be a homer. Since 2006, Ohio’s own Buckeye Chuck has been twice as accurate as Phil, with six correct predictions to Phil’s three.”  — Source:  WLWT5 (www.wlwt.com)
