Groundhog Day

Well, after a long, rainy winter, we were blessed with bright sunshine today. What does this mean?  Can we all count on the groundhog in Pennsylvania or is this seasonal forecast purely a local thing?  And what time of day does the groundhog peer out?  This morning we started out with fog, then midday bright sunshine with high clouds, now later in the afternoon the clouds are getting thicker.  Plus, it turns out we have our own season-predicting hedgehog here in Portland.  Who knew?  And he didn't see his shadow this morning.  Good thing he didn't join me for lunch in White Salmon, Washington, where this bright shadow photo was taken!

I hope that the world was not looking for his shadow and winter will no longer be with you. Regards.

Yup, I'd say we're in for 6 more weeks of winter here in the PNW.
