Ready For Spring

It’s Groundhog Day today. Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, which means 6 more weeks of winter. Phil is by far the most famous of Groundhogs, but there are lots of other groundhogs around the country that didn’t see their shadow. Who made Phil the King of the Groundhogs anyway? I choose General Beauregard Lee as my 2010 groundhog of choice. Mostly because I like his name. Out of 11 groundhogs, 6 predict an early spring, 5 predict more winter. I see the glass as half full today. See ya Winter!
