snipped from The Washington Post comes the following update on our current wintery conditions: "Punxsutawney Phil, the world’s most beloved and furry seasonal prognosticator, has seen his shadow on Monday morning (despite overcast skies), portending six more weeks of winter.
The groundhog’s predication came around 7:25 a.m. in Punxsutawney, Pa., with overcast skies and scattered snow and rain showers moving through the region from the latest winter storm — conditions that are likely to continue if the plucky marmot gets his way."
Say it ain't so, Phil! Sigh ... 'tho I AM going to enjoy my 3-day weekend as we're snuggled in at home due to the latest winter storm! February 2nd also happens to be 40 days after Christmas and exactly midway between the winter and spring equinox. So that means that winter is half over and spring is inching its way forward. YES! It’s amazing what you can learn from reading the Farmers Almanac (or, as in my case, from reading Lynn Mercurio's Stamperosity post today)! Thanx for stopping by!
