I enjoy Ground Hog Day. Always did. I think it's because I took it so seriously as a kid, and it's carried over in to my adult years.
Having said that, the folks who run the show in Punxsutawney do go overboard. But hey, go for it. It is the one day of the year the little town in Jefferson County is in the spotlight. Enjoy your moment.
Spring right around the corner would be nice, but no matter how you look at it, there is still a lot of winter left. As I irritatingly note, some of our worst snow storms have been in February and March.
Just look at it this way... Most of winter is over.
>>>UPDATE: Phil did not see his shadow this morning, and he predicts an early spring. Relax. It's just harmless fun.
