Former Treasure Valley Meteorologist Loses it Over Groundhog Prediction [VIDEO]
We used to love watching Dani Beckstrom on Channel 6 in the morning, but had no idea how much she disliked Punxsutawney Phil!
Remember watching Dani on Good Morning Idaho? It's been a few years since she graced our TV screens with her forecast. Dani moved to Fort Meyers, Florida to take a job at Fox 4 in 2016, but her name still pops up in my Twitter feed from time to time. Shortly after Punxsutawney Phil made his 2018 prediction was one of those times.
Little did we know that Dani, who's one of the sweetest forecasters on the planet, really has it out for Punxsutawney Phil. From his accuracy percentage to what he wears on Ground Hog Day, she didn't hold back how she really feels about Phil during her forecast this morning.
In her defense, even Alexa is a bit underwhelmed by Phil's accuracy.
For what it's worth, the Zoo Boise prairie dog that predicts weather for the Treasure Valley did NOT see his shadow and says there will be an early spring this year. It's also worth noting that Boise Bill is actually a stuffed animal and that I had no idea about that until Groundhog Day 2016.
