ALBERTVILLE, Ala. (WAAY-31)-  Poor Puxatony Phil.  As we all shiver in the cold, it’s only natural for someone to take the heat.

Phil’s prediction-gone-wrong has not gone unnoticed. It’s splashed across the news, from the Wall Street Journal to The Hollywood Gossip.

If WQSB morning radio host, Jenna Sue, had her way, Sand Mountain Sam would be the only rodent we would listen to. “Here is the thing…how can a northern groundhog know anything about southern weather,” Sue asked.

Jenna Sue says WQSB’s weather-predicting-possum has 99% accuracy when it comes to his extended forecast.

“In over 20 years of broadcasting, Sand Mountain Sam has only been wrong one time. And that was his first year,” Sue said.

“It’s time for people to come over to the other side and get on the bandwagon with Sand Mountain Sam.”

I wanted to ask Sam a few questions for myself. Unfortunately he was unavailable for comment. Sue says that is because he is on “wing” break.

“See, it’s not spring break, it’s still winter, so it’s wing break,” Sue laughed.

No matter what season it is, it’s Sand Mountain Sam we trust!
