Groundhog day!!

  1. Well, most of you probably won't like this, but scientific evidence (i.e. Punxsutawney Phil) has predicted that there will be 6 more weeks of winter. Phil saw his shadow today, after being dragged out of his den by a group of middle aged men in silly hats.

    So don't put those coats and sweaters away just yet!

    wonder what his equally as useless canadian cohort wiarton willy predicted..... ahhhhhh lemme guess "Canada will be beligured with 6 months more of winter like weather, break out your snowshoes, hardy har har"
    I'll have to tune into the news, because of course it will be the first story , not like there are more important pressing issues in the world or anything , I mean come on , a groundhog achieving fame through the absence or presence of his shadow, you just cant beat that

    What a terrible weekend. I was hoping for a little break from the subnormal temps.

    I wonder what's going to happen here on the west coast--The temperature this past week or so has been in the 50's or above--the crocus are in bloom, the neighbor's narcissus is starting to bloom, and the buds are swelling on my apricot! What usually happens is--we have a nice hard freeze. The silly apricot always blooms early and gets its blossoms frozen. In 20 years or so, I've seen 3 fruit!

    Why do they bother to drag a fat groundhog out every year? It's always 6 more weeks! Has it ever been less?
