Today is the day that we wait for that lovable Punxsutawney Phil to make his appearance and let us know if winter will soon be over.
Me, I am hoping Phil doesn't see his shadow. I am wanting summer to get here sooner, rather than later. Me and the Captain are starting to exhibit signs of boating withdrawal, and let me tell you that can get pretty ugly.
So here is what I want to know. If it is cloudy when Phil emerges and he doesn't see his shadow than summer is coming sooner. But if he does see his shadow, he will go back to his burrow and we have six more weeks of winter. Isn't that backwards. Phil's been stuck underground for all this time. Wouldn't you think he would be looking forward to getting out and socializing or at the very least just stretching his legs? Of course I am not a groundhog, so what do I know?
A bit of trivia that I thought you guys would all want to know, Groundhog Day is one of my favorite films. Cracks me up each and every time I watch it, plus its a tradition for the Captain and I to dust off our copy and watch it yearly, whether Phil sees his shadow or not.
We have a couple of friends over, make up my "Groundhog Inspired Chili", throw together some Groundhog punch, which is eerily similar to my awesome Margarita's. I also put together a platter with pretzels, nuts and smoked sausage; well you guys get the picture. We make an evening out of it and and have a great time too.
So from me and mine to you and yours...Happy Groundhog Day!
