Happy Ground Hog Day

Looking out from the hole

Well, Punxsutawney Phil the groundhog saw no shadow today.  So, per the mythology, we’ll be getting early spring.  Or not.  When I was a kid, we all based the anticipated weather on if a local groundhog would have seen its shadow, not on the predictions of some critter from “back east.”

That said, as an adult, I encourage carnivores to celebrate the day with a bit of sausage—sausage gravy with biscuits, sausage pizza, a polish brat cooked up with sauerkraut, apples and potatoes.  Any ground hog that you like will work on Ground Hog Day.

  1. Well if ol’ Phil had been in Utah, he for sure would have seen his shadow. Beautifully sunny day though on the chilly side still. We could stand to have more snow in my valley too.
