The handlers of Pennsylvania’s most famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, said the furry rodent failed to see his shadow at dawn Tuesday, meaning he “predicted” an early spring.
Be that as it may, February 2nd (Groundhog Day) showed no evidence of spring, but rather saw a menacing snowstorm hit Kelly Lake with blowing, drifting, heavy snow accumulating up to 9″! Makes one wonder what the bewitched varmit was thinking! We couldn’t see our shadow either; not even the other side of the lake through the snow!
But, who’s one to question a groundhog seeing HIS shadow… I didn’t come here to doubt Punxsutawney Phil, but to praise him! Keeping the faith, we dug out after the third significant snowfall! Roger
