Did the ground hog see his shadow in your part of the planet? Are you due for six more weeks of harsh cold or will the rest of winter be mild? The ground hog in my part of central Texas saw his shadow, so I guess we are heading in for some very cold weather. But frankly, I don't care how cold if it brings rain, snow, sleet, ice - MOISTURE!
In case you haven't heard, we have extreme drought conditions. I can not help but give a sardonic laugh when the Weatherbug sends me a red flag fire warning because there is nothing left to burn around here -- no grass, no weeds, just loose, powdery soil blowing in the wind. Oh, well, enough of that and on to the next paragraph which is much more interesting. :D
I just love the Internet because you can find out something on just about anything. Ground Hog Day is one of those traditions that you hear about from the cradle but, most likely as in my case, never thought to find its origins. So, I googled and found this site, Ground Hog Day, giving the little known facts and origins. Check it out; it's a fun piece.
Until next time, God bless.
