Happy Groundhog Day 2015!

February 2 is Groundhog Day!

As of the writing of this post, we’ve yet to learn what the future holds. Will Punxsutawney Phil, the world renown groundhog from Pennsylvania, emerge from hibernation and see his shadow, taking this as a sign of six more weeks of Winter and return to his burrow? Or will he give us good news, seeing no shadow and letting us know that an early Spring is on its way?

The legend of Groundhog Day is based on an old Scottish couplet: “If Candlemas Day is bright and clear, there’ll be two winters in the year.” And while we all know that whether or not Phil sees his shadow is no true indicator of what Mother Nature holds in store for us, it’s still a fun little distraction in the middle of the cold, snow, and limited sunlight of the Winter months.

I’m curious, though – what do you think of Winter? Are you counting the days until Spring, as I am, or are you just fine with the cold? Leave a comment and let’s chat!

  1. I’m fine with Groundhog Day and whatever prognostication Phil came up with this year, as long as we don’t have to re-live the day 100 times as in the movie. I happen to enjoy winter, especially when my lap kitty Sam and I are relaxing in front of the crackling fire in my fireplace!
