Let the madness commence…
Oh, the weather outside is frightful,
but the fire is so delightful,
and since we’ve no place to go,
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!


Whistle Pig Day


‘Tis February 2. The day the National League was founded. But since I’ve always been an American League kind of girl, I’ll not dwell on that. February 2’s other claim to fame is, of course, Groundhog’s Day and Punxsutawny Phil. This year, Phil saw his shadow, meaning six more weeks of winter for us. Personally, I can’t wait for another snow storm to blow through with 3 more feet of snow.
On the other hand, Phil’s not the only predictor these days. Wiarton Willie, the albino resident of Ontario, did not see his shadow and is predicting an early spring. But then again, he’s Canadian and can we really trust those Canucks?
