Cold chicken

The great chicken countdown.

So this week that "seer of seers, prognosticator of prognosticators" Puxatony Punxsutawney Phil proclaimed there would be six more weeks of winter.

We're not sure what a Puxatony Punxsutawney spring looks like, but here in the great northeast, the first day of spring is usually just another day. Just another cold, damp wintry day. Here's a more accurate harbinger of warmer days. It's the PJ's BBQ sign in Saratoga. Eleven weeks to smokey, sloppy, bar-b-cuey goodness.

Still, here's hoping the marmot was right.


I usually hate when people jump in on blogs with the smallest typo, but you really botched the spelling of Punxsutawney!

Rats! I mean marmots! Thanks K.!

Well, there is only 5 more weeks until Albany's first big party; the St. Patrick's Day Parade! Yippie!
