As most of you know, February 2nd is Groundhog Day.
Punxsutawney Phil will poke his head out and look for his shadow.
If he sees it, he will go back into his hole for the remainder of the winter. Six more weeks.
No shadow? He will declare it as a sign of spring!
OK, Western Pennsylvania is one thing. What about northern Lower Michigan?
If he were at Russ-Stick Acres, what would he see?
Shadows? We’ve got ’em.
Yes, winter is long.
But we can hold on folks.
If I, without a shower or bath available can hold on, you can do it.
There’s another saying by American 19th century farmers. Groundhog Day – Half your Hay.
But seriously, summer is right around the corner.
You say you scoff at Punx Phil? Just a bunch of phooey?
In 1986 he got to meet with President Reagan.
Punx Phil also appeared on Oprah in 1995.
So listen up tomorrow. Punx Phil knows.
Either way, we’ll be here.
Until tomorrow ~ Shadow or No Shadow ~ God willing,
