As If We Haven't Already Had Enough Winter . . .

Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow this morning, which according to folk legend means we should expect six more weeks of winter. Read all about it here.

  1. Have you gotten a vibe from William? What does he think? We are looking forward to warmer weather.

    1. LOL. William's no groundhog, but he's predicting an early spring. When we were out at 7:25 a.m., the same time Phil saw his shadow, William did NOT see his shadow, and instead of wanting to scurry frightened back into the house, William wanted to linger outside and enjoy the relatively warm and balmy morning. But I can't tell if I'm getting genuine prognostication from William or just powerful wishful thinking.

  2. According to the of course infallible Wikipedia, Punxsutawney Phil has been correct in his predictions only 39% of the time. So my money is with William.
