Shadow Sighting

According to the groundhog, we are going to have 6 more weeks of winter. Stupid groundhog. What does he know? I'm all for winter in it's season, and it will last 6 more weeks here anyway, if not 12 or 16.

My mother-in-law tells me her tulip tree is covered in buds in Houston. Just talking about flowers makes me want to see some! You certainly appreciate the spring more when you have to wait so long to get a little. There will be no tulip tree bud sightings here for at least another 3 months. I am not quite done with winter yet anyway, but apparently Spring is coming up fast, as all the stores in NY are stocking their Spring line. I can't think about cute pastel colors right now! I'm still thinking of buying a few sweaters at these super sales because I have 2 more months to wear them.

BTW, who thought up Groundhog day anyway? Why is the designated groundhog in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania? Did you know they want federal money to open a Groundhog Day Museum there? That's crazy talk.

Argh, six more weeks. I can't think about Groundhog Day without thinking of that ridiculous movie.

For me Ground Hog's Day is just a silly excuse to have a party. I love celebrating all the holidays no one cares about. Up next President's Day. & you gotta love those grandparent's day parties.

Oh my gosh, at a school where I used to teach they actually had a grandparents' day party every year. That just brought back some sketchy memories.

Has the Groundhog ever NOT seen his shadow?

They played the Groundhog Day movie on deployment constantly. No better comparison...

Staten Island Chuck did not see his shadow.

I think Groundhog Day falls into the same holiday category of Valentine's Day. It's not in celebration of any historical or heroic person, nor is it in celebration of someone's culture or religion. Maybe it's in celebration or rodents everywhere...they deserve a day, too, right?
