It’s Groundhog Day! (Well, Yesterday)

The Canadian weather-predicting groundhogs Wiarton Willie and Shubenacadie Sam decided that spring would be early this year. Yay!

I saw my shadow but I decided not to let it scare me.

Me and my weather-predicting parka.

I hope your local groundhog has sent good weather tidings your way.

Happy mid-week. 🙂

  1. Yeah. The groundhog gimmick. Just when you think winter is never going to end, they come out to tell us there will be 6 more weeks of winter if they see their shadow or 42 more days if they don’t. A good laugh as the cold and snow lingers on. Love the shadows of winter. They make us all look so tall and slender. Allan

      1. Oh that is very cold. You are right it is really pretty. I love a good snow fall. Stay warm. Hugs and hot chocolate coming your way. Joni 🤗❤️

          1. Wow you must be use to it. I hope you get to enjoy the sun again on your days off. I bet it is so peaceful walking to work. Have a blessed day. Love ❤️ Joni

          2. I can’t say that I’m used to it; it’s more that I’m used to how to dress for it. We’re starting to have some light on the way to work now, so that’s nice. Days are getting longer. 🙂

    1. Yes, mosquito season. 😝It starts here about 4 days after the temperature goes above zero. I think I would rather have cold. You can dress for that. But mossies? No matter how much bug spray I wear, they still manage to do damage.

  2. I don’t need a groundhog. If December and January are relatively nice, as they were this year, February is going to be winter on steroids. What’s on the way this weekend? Polar vortex!!!!

    1. I don’t need one either; my parka always tells me when it’s time to stick it in the back of the closet. 😉 We are going to experience -40C (-40F) this weekend, so polar vortex it is. Yuck. 🥶

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
