Concord Casimir’s Groundhog Day 2023 Prediction

Below, find the official news release for Concord Casimir‘s Groundhog Day 2023 prediction.

Concord Casimir says it’s going to be a Flip Flop end of Winter. Keep your Long Underwear (gacies) and your Shorts (krotkie spodenki) handy in the same drawer.

Concord Casimir made his much anticipated forecast this Thursday at 10am at Ellison Creek Knob in Concord, Ohio. Casimir is predicting some dramatic shifts to our weather for the duration of our winter where you will be freezing one week and then shedding your clothes the next.

It’s all in the way Casimir eats his pierogi, states John Niedzialek, Master of Ceremony. It’s a no brainer this year folks. Casimir was flipping his pierogi around today during his annual prediction meal and that can mean only one thing: expect a “flip- flop” end of winter.

With Casimir’s forecast last year right on the money predicting all that rain, there should be a movement to rename Feb 2 Concord Casimir Day, says Niedzialek. He is undefeated in his predictions.

Casimir was found abandoned as a kitten on the footsteps of St. Casimir Polish Church on Cleveland’s east side at what many are now calling “Cleveland’s Miraculous Polish Church” after it reopened on July 15, 2012. Perhaps it is just a coincidence, but Concord Casimir shares the same birthday of July 15. Is it divine intervention or is Casimir just that good? In any case, why would anyone listen to a groundhog?

This year Casimir also known as the Polish Prince of Felines moved up his forecast 2 hours from Noon to 10am due to news media demand and he was not at all happy about it. You would think a cat who only works one day out of the year would not mind getting up a little earlier but no, Casimir was one grumpy cat. I think he caught a glimpse of that critter from Pennsylvania on TV in the morning and that got his morning off to a rough start.

John Niedzialek is a weather enthusiast retired from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Niedzialek teaches Earth Science at Lakeland College in Mentor, Ohio, works part time for the Lake County Soil & Water Conservation District, and volunteers at St. Casimir Polish Church.
