Punxsutawney Phil Returns

There is a German tradition that holds that if a hibernating animal, the illustrious groundhog, sees its shadow on Feb. 2 — the Christian holiday of Candlemas — winter will last another six weeks. If no shadow is seen, legend says spring will come early.

The groundhog has spoken. And it's bad news .... Yep ... Another 6 weeks of winter!

Not the biggest surprise considering the dreary, cold, snow/rain/sleet action we got going on now here ...

Not happy at all about Phil's prognostication in Virginia.

Here in West Virginia, we have French Creek Freddie. Freddie did not see his shadow this year. Yay!
