Thank Wiarton Willie

February is here.

Yay!

My favorite month of the year.

And today is Groundhog Day.

I'm watching the morning news with amusement; a local show feeding live updates from Wiarton, Ontario.

What will Wiarton Willie predict? An early spring or 6 more weeks of winter?

Groundhog Punxsutawney Phil predicted a longer winter.

No!

So far it has been a mild winter. No tobogganing or frolicking in the snow.

Whatever the prediction, Willie will know best.

Did he see his shadow?

J.P ran down, and shouted, "Mommy, I saw my shadow!"

I chuckled in delight.

Thankfully Willie Wiarton did not see his shadow and concluded it will be an early spring!
