Today we are hoping for early morning clouds in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. This is the day we learn when spring will arrive. According to an old Pennsylvania German tradition, from the 18 and 19 centuries, a ground hog will predict spring’s arrival. If the ground hog, Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow, early this morning when he emerges from his burrow, we will have 6 more weeks of winter.
However, if Punxsutawney Phil does not see his shadow this morning, we should an early spring. We are hoping for clouds in Pennsylvania this morning.
I visited Punxsutawney once.. I had relatives who lived there.
I think we stopped there on the motorcycle once. Or maybe just near Punxsutawney. Hope Phil the Ground hog does not see his shadow. Thanks for reading and commenting.
Reports said Phil saw his shadow, so 6 more weeks of winter is predicted. Oh well. We will survive but definitely prefer summer. Thanks for reading and commenting.
I could send you some summer. We had the hottest January on record and the first week of February broke records too. It’s going to be 35 degrees C today.
We did not get above freezing yesterday and it doesn’t look any better for today. Unusual for us. I’ll take the heat–and a swimming pool or ocean. We always want what you don’t have at the moment.
