    How 'bout this weather, eh? Been on Facebook recently? That's where you can find all the latest weather news and updates. Or, you know, you could step outside. But this is 2013 – why go out when everything is at your fingertips via the internet? It's snowing right now. (Maybe not as you're reading this, but as I'm writing this, which is the night before you are reading it.) Yesterday (two days ago from your perspective) snow was unthinkable. Crazy weather here in the valley is nothing new, but for some reason we never fail to be astounded by it.

    Listen: tomorrow, Saturday, February 2, is Groundhog Day. This is the day that Phil the groundhog from Punxatawney, Pennsylvania pokes his furry little head out of his burrow and observes the existence or nonexistence of his shadow. If it's there: six more weeks of winter. This does not apply to Louisville. Our weather will do whatever it wants regardless of what some hairy rodent says.

    Meanwhile, you can head to Baxter Avenue Theaters later Saturday night for a midnight screening of the classic comedy Groundhog Day

    . Bill Murray stars as Phil Connors, a meteorologist sent to Punxatawney to cover the Groundhog Day celebration for his news program. However, after going to sleep that night, he wakes up to find that it is Groundhog Day – again – and he is forced to relive the exact same day over and over, and he is free to act with zero consequences, as everything is erased when he goes to bed for the night.

    Baxter Avenue Theater is located at 1250 Bardstown Road. Further theater information and showtimes can be found at the Baxter Avenue Theater website.

    About Allan Day

    There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
