Groundhog Day

So, apparently, Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow today, therefore predicting an early spring. Daffodils, and birdies, and warm breezes, and gentle rains!

In other news, the Chicago police have pretty much finished extracting trapped commuters from frozen-and-closed Lake Shore Drive. And the snow is starting up again.

Go, Punxsutawney Phil?

I can offer daffodil shoots, birdies, slightly chilly wind and rain showers if that's any use? :-)

It hit 14C here today, but since the weather went bizzare in December and we often get snow in February anyway, I'm shutting up about it.

Ooo, ooo, guess what we're getting next, now that the blizzard is dying down!

Bitter cold! Yay!

The forecasts are guesstimating -9 F, which is -23 C. Don't you just wish you were back in Chicago?

I suspect the officials in Punxsutawney figured no one could stand the idea of six more weeks of winter at this point so they made sure Phil didn't spot his shadow.

I can't imagine how Punxsutawney Phil could have seen anything at all in the blizzard!

My husband and I were wondering if the Groundhog Day event had ever been cancelled because of weather.

I'm sure Phil would much rather have stayed in his warm burrow--or actually his habitat at the library. Then again, he only has to work one day a year.

I suppose if the weather were that bad, they'd just declare that Phil hadn't seen his shadow, and therefore spring is coming. Which is what people want to hear anyway.
