Don't trust the Groundhog
April 5, 2018 11:27am CST
The groundhogs spoke and promised a late spring. But they did not all agree. Two of the Canadian groundhogs Sam and Fred predicted an early spring. Another one Wiarton Willie did not see an early spring as did Pennsylvania's Punxsutawney Phil. But they were all wrong since we never got an early spring or late spring – we have no spring yet., in my part of the world anyway. Six weeks more of spring was promised, now 8 weeks later I am still waiting patiently for spring. Winter has not left and the weather forecast says the cold will continue for awhile longer with more snow possible. How are you enjoying your spring if it came? How are you dealing with an extended winter if that is the case?

But the groundhog does not truly lie no matter which way it is said. We will have 6 more weeks of winter or we have 6 more weeks until spring. Groundhog day is 6 weeks before the spring equinox. So officially spring was on time. But I agree lets shoot him and have a meal as it is still cold here too.

Spring is already here but its a bit crazy like the weather itself but I don´t mind as I don´t like long very very hot summer days that go on forever and ever. I prefer it like it is now warm but not overly so. Poor groundhogs maybe the weather affects them also to be fair.

I've been hearing more and more about winter hanging on in the US. It is warm and sunny in Western Australia and has been for a week or two. And it seems destined to continue for a bit longer. I must be sure to tell @JolietJake as it really gets up his nose to know how nice it is here.
Spring is taking its sweet time here also. There is a bit of snow predicted in the long range forecast for my area of Canada, but no significant amounts. Right now it's sunny, but the high pressure brings no humidity and the wind has a chill. I'm wearing my winter jacket. :-(
