This was supposed to be the year Punxsutawney Phil went high-tech, with promises of a text message and tweet to announce his prediction. Well, he wandered out of his den at dawn today, saw his shadow, and the grand announcement was made that we’d have six more weeks of winter. Two hours later a text message went out to that effect, followed soon after by a Twitter update. According to an AP story, “Officials with the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club didn’t immediately return calls about Phil’s texting skills” though they promised to reply by email as soon as they remember where the “Send” button is.
