Slap the Groundhog, please!

It's Groundhog's Day! Um... My enthusiasm died quickly when it was announced there's going to be six more weeks of winter. Groundhog Punxsutawney Phil predicted it in the tiny western Pennsylvania town today.
It's actually a German tradition that says if a "hibernating animal" (groundhog, bear, etc.) sees its shadow on Feb. 2 — the Christian holiday of Candlemas — winter will last another six weeks. If no shadow is seen, then spring will come early.
All I can say is "DUH, Phil." Baltimore/Washington is under another Winter Storm Warning tonight for 2-5" of snow overnight. THEN, another major snow storm is shaping up for the weekend.
If I see a groundhog, I may just slap him!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
