Groundhog Day -- again

According to folklore, today  is the day that the Groundhog comes out of his hole after a long winter sleep to look for his shadow.
If he sees his shadow, he regards it as an omen of six more weeks of bad weather and returns to his hole.
If the day is cloudy and therefore shadowless, he takes it as a sign of spring and stays above ground.

It's been a mild winter so far.  A little bi of snow, nothing too dramatic. 

I'm hoping it stays that way.

Cold and clear here in Idaho. For us pagan today is mid point between winter solstice and spring equinox. Which is called Imbolc
Coffee is on

For us in upstate, it has been mild so far. But we've had a couple of episodes of ice, and we may have another one on Tuesday morning. Ugh. I hate to say I'm too old for this, but I'm too old for this.
