Happy Groundhog Day!
And here's NOAA's forecast for Punxsutawney, PA -
Today: Thursday: Mostly cloudy, with a high near 39. North wind between 3 and 10 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph%.
Looking pretty good for an early Spring (although maybe not quite as good as yesterday when I first posted this thinking that Groundhog Day was the first day of february and the Punxsutawney forecast was for cloudy drizzle - still feels springy out there, though).
The groundhog posed for a picture on the banks of the French Broad River near Asheville, NC during a trip TQ and I took down there a few years ago. The French broad wasn't around the day we were there.
Note added later: Oh, Phil, you stupid, stupid rodent. 6 more weeks of winter, you say? Well, maybe we'll get through it better with some good, hot, home-cooked meals. Capisce?
