shadows February 2nd, 2010
Well, Bowser saw his shadow when I took his outside this morning, and we all know what that means. More winter. But it didn’t really appear just outside our door, where the sun wasn’t shining. Only when I walked him into the alleyway where it was sunnier, so… I dunno, I never understood the whole “groundhog” day tradition. And what if he decides to sleep in? There would be a lot of disappointed people hanging out in Pennsylvania for no good reason. Well anyways, more winter is not so surprising seeing that there is snow in the forecast not only today, but this coming weekend as well.
And now, an interesting little tidbit for some of our readers and fans who are currently skipping out on what is definitely a colder, harsher winter than we have here in DC… According to Wikipedia: “In Alaska, February 2 is observed as Marmot Day rather than Groundhog Day because few groundhogs exist in the state. The holiday was created by a bill passed by the Alaska Legislature in 2009 and signed by then-Governor Sarah Palin that year.” brilliant!
