February 2 is the day we find out if we're in for six more weeks of winter or if spring is just around the corner. Only a groundhog named Punxsutawney Phil knows for sure.
We’ve had some cold mornings this week. Fifteen degrees on Tuesday morning reminded me that we’re not even a month officially into winter. With Groundhog Day Sunday, February 2, we can only hope that Punxsutawney Phil does not see his shadow. Tradition has it that if Phil sees his shadow, he will be frightened and will return to his burrow, indicating that there will be six more weeks of winter. If he does not see his shadow, then spring is on the way.
