Have You Seen Your Shadow Today?

It’s Groundhog Day! And whether or not there are going to be six more weeks of winter depends on where your groundhog lives. I, thankfully, live in the South, home of General Beauregard Lee, who emerged this morning to cloudy skies and did not see his shadow. This means that his hometown of Atlanta and the surrounding area will not see six more weeks of winter. Praise the Lord and pass the biscuits and gravy! We’ve had enough winter here already, thank you very much. And, in case you didn’t know it, General Lee has gone high tech. He tweeted his weather report to the world via Twitter! Way to go General Lee! Five hundred sixty miles to the north, the somewhat more famous (but less technically inclined) Punxsutawney Phil  in Pennsylvania was unfortunate enough to awake to a sunny day in which he saw his shadow. That means the poor ol’ Yankees will have winter weather for six more weeks. Probably longer. Bless their hearts. And Happy Birthday to the World’s Cutest Groundhog, my granddaughter Margaret, born on 02/02/02, who turns seven today!
