I really think we are getting punked by the groundhog. Someone put him up to this. He is getting paid off. There must be some incriminating pictures floating around out there of him and the Easter Bunny or something. He really can’t be frickin’ serious about this can he? I mean, he proclaimed that spring was coming early. Old Man Winter was packing up and heading out on a long vacation. I am waiting for Ashton Kutcher to pop out laughing and telling all of us in the Northeast that he punked us.
That is the resounding chant that this fellow New Yorker can hear being mumbled under the breath of many passerby. I mean, let’s be real, the winter season in NYC is pretty long and dreary. Sure, we have lucked out these past bunch of years here in the city with really not that much snowfall, but the days are still long, cold, and dark. The blustery arctic-like winds make us yearn for warm sun upon our faces. The occasional sunny day turns into cloud covered rainy ones.

Our semi-crazy Mayor Bloombito has all the trucks ready waiting to plow the streets and throw the sand down. I have to give him some props for making sure the city is prepared. Just don’t get caught drinking a Big Gulp while waiting around or the sugar police will come and arrest you.
Speaking of waiting around just where is Nemo? We have been waiting all day here in the city and all we have so far are a few snowflakes, light rain, and flurries. I’m not really impressed so far. I even decided to work from home today since the forecast was calling for this mess to begin early afternoon. Hey Mister Snow Miser – I want a refund!
