The dastardly Groundhog that predicted six more weeks of winter is admiring the weather this week, as blizzards continue to ravage the east coast and now the midwest.

Ice and snow storms have hit everywhere, and Punxsutawney Phil is letting everyone know he warned us. The Groundhog saw his shadow earlier this month, signifying – scientifically – that this was coming.

“This is all going according to plan,” Phil was heard saying before taking a puff from his cigar. “A few more weeks of this and then maybe they’ll learn. Maybe they’ll respect me.”

Scientists have confirmed this indeed all accurate and the Groundhog’s grip on 2022 will cease in March.
