That’s just great, six more weeks of winter

Great, another six weeks of bone chilling winter for us.

Punxsutawney (puhnk-suh-TAW’-nee) Phil has emerged to see his shadow before chilly revelers in Pennsylvania, meaning winter will last another six weeks.

German tradition holds that if a hibernating animal sees its shadow on Feb. 2 – the Christian holiday of Candlemas – winter will last another six weeks. If no shadow is seen, legend says spring will come early.

The Inner Circle of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club annually announces Phil’s forecast at dawn on Gobbler’s Knob, about 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

Phil’s announcement came before hundreds of onlookers who huddled as temperatures hovered in the teens.

I’m ready for spring. Ready for baseball. Ready to just sit outside somewhere and enjoy being outside. Oh well, huddle up for another  six weeks.
