Concord Casimir’s Groundhog Day 2024 Prediction

Below, find the official news release for Concord Casimir‘s Groundhog Day 2024 prediction.

Concord Casimir says “It will be Mild Weather for a While but don’t be Fooled”

Concord Casimir made his much anticipated forecast this Thursday at High Noon at Ellison Creek Knob in Concord, Ohio. Casimir says to enjoy the mild weather for a while but a change is coming.

It’s all in the way he eats his pierogi, says John Niedzialek, Master of Ceremony. This year, Casimir hit some hot spots on the surface of his pierogi meaning of course we will have some temporary warm weather. But just as his pierogi turned colder as he ate further, so will the weather. “Don’t be fooled.”

With Casimir’s forecast last year again right on the money predicting the end of winter as flip-flopping around, there should be a movement to rename Feb 2 Concord Casimir Day, says Niedzialek. He is undefeated in his predictions.

Casimir now resides in Concord but 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?

“His fans want Casimir to get up earlier to conduct his forecast, but he just won’t do it”, says Niedzialek. “I mean why would he get up at 6am like that not so smart critter in Pennsylvania when he can eat his pierogi at noon. He also gets annoyed when I put on that top hat. I think it reminds him of some of those scary pictures of people looking for shadows that he sees on the news from Pennsylvania.”

John Niedzialek is a weather enthusiast retired from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Niedzialek has taught Earth Science and Meteorology at Lakeland College, works part time for the Lake County Soil & Water Conservation District, and gives tours at St. Casimir Polish Church.
