Re: Punxsutawney Phil Predicts.........

Funny, no matter what the prediction, Spring usually arrives about the same time.. I guess Mother Nature doesn't believe in Groundhogs

@cherry   LOL

 

Spring is 6 weeks away by the calendar so it stands to reason we will still have 6 more weeks of winter. 

 

I think the prediction means warmer weather or colder weather before the spring calendar date but spring is still 6 weeks away so across the country folks will still have 6 more weeks of winter regardless of Phil.

 

Where I am the 6 weeks mean nothing.  81 degrees this week and then back down to the 50's.  LOL

 

(PS-heading out to TJ's today-will look for the rose hand cream.  The ginger is now gone.)

 

From what I understand this is all goes back to the German population in the 1800's.

No need of anybody poking any groundhogs with sticks just to awaken him from him long winter nap. Everybody already knows there are 6 weeks before the start of SPRING.

Yup! March 20 this year. That means 6 more weeks of winter no matter what Phil says. He is such a cutie!

@PinkDogwood   Nobody pokes any groundhog.

 

Phil is a pet taken care of by handlers indoors.  The tree stump is fake.

He is awake, not napping.  LOL
