This morning Punxsutawney Phil left his burrow in Pennsylvania, saw his shadow and predicted 6 more weeks of Winter while the other 5 lesser known groundhogs scattered around the country (including NYC's Staten Island Chuck) announced that Spring was right around the corner.
Can groundhogs even claim to understand the weather this year? Can anybody?
We've had the craziest season so far with temperatures reaching up into the 60's here in New York and only 2 days of snow this whole year! I can't remember the last time I had to defrost my windshield before my early morning commute and our snow shovel is gathering dust.
I guess Mother Nature knew I was knocked up and had packed away my snowboard and said to herself "Why bother?"
