Well Folks, It is definitely true that Punxsutawney Phil actually communicated in "groundhogese" that he had cast a shadow. According to legend, that means the weather will be wintry for the next 6 weeks.
OK! Sooo if he wouldn't of cast a shadow, then we would have an early spring. Which either way you look at it, March 20th is the 1st day of Spring irregardless. I will always remember when the first day of Spring is because it is my sweet Mother's Birthday, a nice way to welcome the season. Of course, visually seeing the 1st Robin of the season helps too! :)
In the meantime, we are getting a bunch of snow right now and still have to be extra cautious when we are driving. But, if you are a true Michigander, you really do appreciate the beautiful, majestic, gorgeous Wintry splendor. The warm weather will be on us soon enough, but sit back and read your favorite book by your crackling fire or take a walk outside and marvel at the beautiful snowflakes casually drifting down on you and realize that the warmer weather is just around the corner.
