Candlemas Day

If Candlemas be fair and bright,
Winter has another flight.
If Candlemas brings clouds and rain,
Winter will not come again.

Found a neat little history of how we came to celebrate Groundhog Day. Hope y'all enjoy the story of how two cultures blended together for what has become a fun little mid winter diversion. Oh and just so you know, Phil predicts an early spring. YAY!

He's really lucky he predicted an early spring. We called off the hit. Lucky for him as those squirrels were ready to take him out for just peanuts 😝

For those wanting to watch the old Bill Murray movie:

There's a town along the Mississippi that could use some hope today! 2ft of snow and drifts up to well over the kid's head! 😊
