It’s Groundhog Day. So you ask, “Did the Groundhog See His Shadow?”
February 2nd, 2006
Sorry, folks! He did see his shadow. So that means six more weeks of winter to come.
Don’t feel bad, it’d still be 6 more weeks of winter whether he saw his shadow or not. Cause the reality is, we still have six weeks to go till Spring.
Happy Groundhog Day!
P.S. Don’t forget to eat pancakes, like they do for Candlemas!

Pardon me. This is more a question, stemmed from my ignorance, than a comment.
If the groundhog sees his shadow, that means we have six more weeks of winter. Fine. But what if he doesn’t see his shadow? What revelation does that bring? Five weeks of winter instead of six?

If the groundhog doesn’t see his shadow, we’re supposed to have nicer weather for the rest of winter.
But really there’s still 6 more weeks of winter either way. Sorry, it doesn’t change the first day of Spring from being 6 weeks away to being 5 weeks away, no matter how much you might want Spring to be here sooner!
