Are you hoping for more winter or an early spring?? Our weather here has been pretty crazy ---yesterday it was 55 !! The tulips and daffodils are popping up already. I don't care if it is winter or spring, but not both at the same time!!!

What winter?

I got out the snow-mower today. Plow the snow and mow the grass all in one pass. My fear is this same ??? weather pattern will continue until July: Warm winter, cold summer...

Not to be gross: seeing coons/possums x on the road. Not even hibernating. 50 degrees yesterday. Buds on the trees? End of Jan, first of Feb. supposed to be the depth of winter? Feels like April.

I say we all head for the beach.

Cool Wow it looks like someone beat me to the post about ground hog day.....Way to go Joan.......Just remember you do not have to live in the great state of Pennsylvania to enjoy this wonderful day...I hope for a quick end to this wacky winter.....I look at it as one step closer to spring and a retreat to the island for some peace and solitude......Any other predictions???? Post your prognostications here....... Idea Regards, Kevin......

Actually the day is celebrated worldwide, and there are fan clubs that have parties and banquets from one end of the country to the other. Festivities in town start today and even though it is a week day there is a lot going on.

If you would like to see the "Phantastic Phil" statues that are around town check out http://www.punxsutawney.com/phils/.

Also Vaseline Intensive Care has a Phil promotion that was just published in yesterday's newspaper ----check out www.moistureobsessive.com

Did anyone order the new TY Beanie PHIL ---2006 ?

Have a fun day wherever you are!!! Very Happy
