Merrimack NH Police Department Issue A Warrant For Punxsutawney Phil

Found this article in the news.....

Here’s something Punxsutawney Phil probably never predicted: jail time.

But a police force in snow-beleagured New Hampshire said on social media Tuesday that it wants to see the weather forecasting groundhog really spend some time in the hole.

The Merrimack Police Department posted a joke on its Facebook page demanding Punxsutawney Phil’s arrest for failing to predict just how bad this year’s winter would be.

“He told several people that Winter would last 6 more weeks, however he failed to disclose that it would consist of mountains of snow!” the department wrote under a picture of the groundhog from the film “Caddyshack.”

“If you see him, do not approach him as he is armed and dangerous. Call Merrimack Police, we will certainly take him into custody!”

Snowbound citizens of Merrimack eagerly got in on the joke. The post got more than 4,000 likes and nearly 700 comments, with many offering details on recent Phil sightings and suggestions on how to nab him.

One person, Peggy Graves, pretended to be the groundhog’s attorney, writing: “Quite simply, Mr. Phil was asked to predict how much longer winter would last. He correctly did so, thus fulfilling his legal obligations. He was not asked to predict details pertaining to the weather; therefore, he was under no legal obligation to provide any.”

Any you know the even crazier thing?  We are preparing for blizzard conditions and another 12-18 inches....batteries? Check. Food? Check. Water? Check. Wood stacked? Check....

Well, you get the jist....Happy Valentine's Blizzard Day!❄️
