EARLY SPRING, PHIL?
Yes, it's Groundhog Day.
Yes, it was crazy this morning in Punxsutawney -- thank goodness PCN covers it live... what a hoot!
And as we all watched in anticipation for Phil to be pulled from his little temporary home, we all were thinking the same thing: 6 more weeks of winter.
But no ... Phil shocked us. He swears he did NOT see his shadow (how could he, in the rain?) and that an early spring would be our reward.
Hmmm. With the winter we've been having, I'd love that. But find it hard to believe.
Oh, and if you're wondering about the photo in my blog, that's courtesy of my daughter Danielle this morning. She carried out to our ice-covered deck for a photo op this morning.
She snagged that little critter in a silent auction at Care & Share a few years ago -- probably at one point was something connected to a Grundsow Lodge.
Yes, the groundhog is wishing you good health and good luck.
No doubt we'll need it... unless Phil is right about that early spring.
