It's not easy being Phil on Groundhog Day. Okay, I suppose I do get some mileage out of it but I've had my share of humiliation, being a radio personality and having to come up with "wacky stunts" to promote events, holidays, whatever. So one year I broadcast from a hole in the ground, another year I was "asked" to don a "groundhog" costume for a promotional video. We couldn't find a groundhog costume so we improvised with....I think it was a squirrel costume. Thank God that video has been filed away somewhere, lost...never to be viewed again.
Here is the official Punxsutawney Phil Twitter update....I know, I know, Phil has a twitter account, you can't make this stuff up.
