Happy Tlacuache Day!

Because his cousin, Phil the groundhog, is buried under feet of white snow, reader Rick asked that Tlaloc el Tlacuache take over his job of foretelling the weather for today.

He came into my yard and said “Wow, that is a long shadow cast from the CAA Webb County scandal… but considering that Mayor Salinas is next to me, I see nothing.” So I guess we have an early Spring!!

Just kidding, this is the choppy video from today’s Groundhog Day ceremonies in Pennsylvania predicting that Spring is right around the corner:

If only Dairy Queen would have offered us a free BLIZZARD coupon for those of us where snow doesn’t fall! What we do get is $30 worth of Border Sporting Goods for $15 through Groupon. See the “another great deal nearby” box on the right – even though we are not nearby the Rio Grande Valley.

    I think you’re on to something here, QF: On Tlacuache Night in early September, Chema (or Chona, let’s give fem-marsupials a shot at glory), the official representative of South Texas’ tlacuaches should emerge from beneath somebody’s house, and if he sees his moon shadow, it means six more weeks of hot weather. If he doesn’t, it means only four more.

    Just like the ground hog celebration up north Laredo could start something like that but with the Tlacuache . Abrazo children , parades , oh wait sounds like WBCA guess Tlacauche day will be put on the back burner too UN – AMERICAN for Laredo. Maybe a White wig wearing European Tlacuache like Jorge might get Laredo on the bandwagon.
