And the ground hog says...

6 more weeks of winter.

Really folks, there's 6 weeks of winter left, period, groundhog or no ground hog. If he sees his shadow, there's 6 more weeks of winter. If he doesn't see his shadow, spring is 6 weeks away.


It's 6 weeks until the spring equinox.

It's snowing in Chicagoland right now. Spring is not on anyone's mind. I gotta go vote in the primary for governor and I dislike both candidates. That's what's on my mind.

And, I'll wade into the PETA comment about using a robot groundhog, are they friggin' nuts? The groundhogs that represent Punxsutawney Phil have a cushy life. They are cared for and are away from predators and natural selection. Once a year, there's a media circus and then the animals are left alone to be groundhogs. Go work with animal shelters, PETA, to make certain there are homes for the millions of unwanted pets and leave Phil alone. This from an animal lover.

Anyway, I need to figure out the windshield wiper problem, why they only seem to work when the car's warm. I kind of need wipers today.

Beverage: Scottish Blend tea.
