Well, it's official. The main groundhog 'Punxsutawney Phil' DID indeed see his shadow.... That means six more weeks of winter weather. Not something everyone here in Billings, including myself, wants to hear. And can I just say that the concept of Groundhogs Day doesn't make sense to me. If it sees its shadow that would mean it is sunny outside. If it is sunny in February wouldn't that mean that we have more of it on the way? Not the opposite? Just sayin...

There are lots of cities around the world that have their own groundhogs and the names are freaking hilarious! So, of course, that got me thinking that Billings needs a groundhog! I feel like our weather patterns up here are so different than the rest of the country so why not get our own predictor! It would need a name though... What would we name it? Here are some of my thoughts:

Balbo Bill
Bandit Bob
Baxter Bear
Benny Boo Boo Boo (I might have stolen that one from 'How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days')
Billings Bernie
Bobby Bo

I could go on forever, really. Have any ideas? What would you name it?
