We North Americans have this strange custom called Groundhog Day. It’s celebrated on February 2nd. The idea is that if the rodent doesn’t see it’s shadow when it comes out of its hole, spring will come early… If it sees its shadow we get six more weeks of winter. I don’t know if other people around the globe celebrate this odd tradition but let me tell you… It doesn’t work! Here we are almost 8 weeks later and there is no significant signs of spring.
Seasonally we should be around 10C (50F) this time of year. We are struggling to get above freezing…. The sun is strong and warm but the air does not seem to want to cooperate.
Needless to say not much to report on. The bogs are still buried in their pine needles! Maybe I will start the process later this week. Regardless, it’s going to be a late start this season.
