Does it really matter? So few people actually go outside to find out for themselves anymore. I like to find out for myself. Go outside!!!

Thanks, Bob. We may tweak that one!

I got 7 right. There is a groundhog in Chattanooga, officially named “Chattanooga Chuck” (not Charlie). That one threw me off. Here in northern middle Tennessee, we call chipmunks “ground squirrels”, not groundhogs. That one threw me off also.
One thing I always like to point out is that Punxsutawney Phil does not predict the winter for the whole U.S., just that region.

9 Paul Anthony Hodges { 01.31.18 at 7:59 am }

70% right. Partially luck.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
