I love that tradition you have :D.

Here's hoping he's right and you have an early spring.

Groundhog Day is one of my favourite films, completely off topic but just thought I'd mention it :).

Every year at this time I just want to rent Groundhog Day. I love that movie.

Well, I'm thinking most of us coulduse an early spring this year.

So I am currently in Punxsutawney staying with mymom. It is nothing like the movie and neither is going to seethe groundhog. I got absolutely no sleep last night becausethere were all kinds of drunk people on the streets yelling and singingand my dogs kept barking at them. It was great fun.

As far as I know, when the groundhog sees his shadow, it means 6 moreweeks of winter. I think it would make more sense the otherway, but I remember my Nana reading me a story when I was little (shelived here her whole life) where the groundhog comes out of his burrow,sees his shadow and is scared back into his house for 6 more weeks ofsleep.

Being scared of your own shadow has nothing to do with weather pattens though :p

I figure, if you see your shadow, the sun is out, and if the sun is out, then its not snowing, which means its not winterlike..

If he came out in the middle of a snowstorm you mean to tell me they'd say no more winter? lol

All I know is that even if there is 6 more weeksof winter left, it's better than the dreaded feeling of "3 more monthsof winter". I figure 6 weeks should fly by.... just know that it's onlya matter of weeks left makes wintery weather a little bit morebearable. I am so ready for spring! I cant wait til the warm weatherrolls around, the sun's out, and flowers start springing up from theground. I really cant wait til there's little buds on the trees......Yay! Spring is just around the corner.....

Right here..."pointing finger to pa, Minnesota, US
Gotta say that in Minnesota we have been havingunseasonably warm temps...makes me think that we are still in for somepretty serious winter weather. We never get off that lucky!! We haveour lovely two seasons, winter, and almost winter! I hope that we havean early spring this year. Last years growing season was cut quiteshort by the late cold temperatures and then the early freeze.

I hear you Fergi. It's been warmish here latelyand I feel it's the calm before the storm. We'll probably get threefeet in one dumping in March, usually happens that way.

The world's most famous animal forecaster -- U.S.rodent Punxsutawney Phil, from my home state of PA has forecast sixmore weeks ofwinter, as he crawled out of his Pennsylvanianhole on February 2 and saw his own shadow. The groundhogs inmy yard concur. :(
