What exactly is "groundhog-ese" and how the heck would we know if it was mistranslated?
Check the weather outside.
Here's the gist of what the most famous groundhog in the world told us on Feb. 2:
Punxsutawney Phil, the King of the Groundhogs,
Seer of Seers, Prognosticator of Prognosticators,
Weather Prophet without Peer,
was awakened from his burrow at 7:28 am
with a tap of the President's cane....
And so ye faithful,
there is no shadow to see
An early Spring for you and me.
"An early spring for you and me."
So said Punxsutawney Phil back on Groundhog Day (Feb. 2.) — which, if our math is right was, 6+ weeks ago.
I’ll bet you remember a time when it did actually snow in February. When the whole country was tired of winter and looked forward to a little tradition called Groundhog Day.

"An early spring for you and me," is this year's prediction from Punxsutawney Phil, the premiere Groundhog Day forecaster.
With an estimated 35,000 spectators watching him Saturday morning, the groundhog — or as he is known to his followers, "the seer of seers" — did not see his shadow.
