Groundhog Day – What’s the Point?

Today is Groundhog Day and Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow. That means that there is six more weeks of winter. But what’s the point?

Actually, what I’d like to know is what happened to winter? Here in Minnesota we just ended the warmest January ever and we had more days in the 40s than we did in the single digits. Snow? Well there isn’t much of that either. We get an inch or two every few weeks, but not enough to keep the ground covered for long.

I highly doubt we’ll have six more weeks of winter since we haven’t really had winter yet; except for early December. Maybe winter is just around the corner? Doubt it, but we can wish for snow can’t we?
