  1. So far this winter has been mild with little snow here in the Pittsburgh area.If we can have 6 more weeks of 40 and 50 degree weather for “winter”,I’ll let Punxy Phil live another year.
    I have lived in Pennsylvania all my life,and,I still hate winter.I’d rather cut the grass than shovel snow anytime.
