For some reason a groundhog is used to predict spring. Seriously, I'm not going to look up the history of it. It is what it is and it doesn't factor into my life. However...what about summer? Wouldn't we all like to know how much summer is left before fall arrives?
I give you the Siamese Cat in a Bucket. Your guess is as good as mine as to what it's predicting. I just know it's warm here and the wind is blowing like there's a blackhole nearby sucking everything into it.
