Happy Groundhog

Yeah so Phil saw his shadow, so six more weeks of winter. Phil’s website says he has a 100% accuracy rate.

However, I looked for his accuracy rate elsewhere and found:

“According to Stormfax.com, Punxsutawney Phil has only been correct approximately 39% of the time. Of course, long range forecasts can be difficult to predict for the human forecaster.”

So Phil’s statistical accuracy says that we have a 61% chance of an early spring, not so bad. I’ll take those odds.

Happy Groundhog Day. 🙂
