Happy Groundhog Day!!

Happy Groundhog Day! February 2nd is Groundhog Day in Canada and in the United States. It's an annnual holiday on which if the groundhog emerges from his burrow and fails to see its shadow because the weather is cloudy, winter will soon end. If it's sunny and the groundhog does see it's shadow, supposedly the groundhog goes back into its burrow and winter will continue for six more weeks.

Yesterday was such a beautiful day. It was 40 degrees F here and today it's supposed to be sunny & temperature is supposed to be 21 degrees F. It looks like there is a good chance that the groundhog will see his shadow.

I don't know about you but we've had such cold weather and way too much snow this winter that I am so ready for spring. Are you??

Have a great day!
