Don’t burn your winter socks just yet. On Groundhog Day, good old Punxsutawney Phil said there were going to be six more weeks of winner, and boy, he’s been right on the money. There haven’t been any Groundhog Day blizzards in my neck of the woods, but I don’t live in New England. New England is just getting battered with snowstorm after snowstorm, and the police in one small New Hampshire town are putting the blame on the world’s favorite rodent. Tiny Merrimack, New Hampshire, has taken out a warrant for Punxsutawney Phil’s arrest.
“We have received several complaints from the public that this little varmint is held up in a hole, warm and toasty,” reads a Facebook post from the Merrimack Police Department. “He told several people that Winter would last 6 more weeks, however he failed to disclose that it would consist of mountains of snow!”
Really, it’s nice to see that the frozen Yankees can have a little fun with their predicament, and that Punxsutawney Phil is more than likely protected from any extradition. After all, he’s a magical rodent, not an armed criminal. Just because he said there would be more winner doesn’t mean he’s the cause of the winter. Plus, come on, he’s way too cute to go to jail.
