The Groundhog's Day

Happy Candlemas, everyone! It's 43 degrees here this morning and the sun is a nice golden color, with n'ary a cloud in the sky. The garden has flooded once more with all the snowmelt.

So naturally, everyone's favorite weather hog, groundhog Phil of Punxsutawney, PA has predicted another six weeks of winter. Everything about Phil is here.

Poor Phil, I hope they let him crawl back into bed when the party's over. Otherwise, he'll be asked to take a side in the big Presidential throw-down. It might be hard for a simple groundhog to get back to sleep though, once he realizes its also Mardi Gras weekend.

Thanks for posting the information on Phil. Thankfully the area I live in doesn't have a harsh winter. If we are lucky we will see some nice days over the next few months and then spring won't be far behind.

Happy Imbolc to you, Autumn and enjoy those early spring days--each one is a treasure! (for those of you who don't know what Imbolc is, Autumn's blog has a *wealth* of information on the subject!)
