Notice anything strange about this picture? It's not a groundhog, it's a Prairie dog. After seeing this on Facebook this morning, my crew have started a campaign to rename "Groundhog day" to "Prairie dog day." Prairie dogs are way better. And way smarter. They bet their predictions will be 77 % more accurate than any groundhog, including Punxsutawney Phil (oh, are those fighting words?)
I mean seriously, who would you rather have predicting whether you'll get an early spring or 6 more weeks of winter?
