it's Groundhog Day!!!

Punxsutawney Phil has seen his shadow once again this morning. That makes 98 times! Although it seems like every year he sees his shadow, there have been 15 times when he has not. There have also been nine unaccounted years with no report. Not sure what happened to him during those years. I do seem to remember at least one time when I was growing up when he did not see his shadow. There is always hope for next year.

Happy Tuesday!! Happy Groundhog Day!!

I totally forgot it was Groundhog Day until I saw your post. I must live in a cave. :-D

Hmmm..I didn't know there were years with no reports.

Shadow or not, I am ready for spring! Hope you are feeling better, and enjoy your photography class!

Thanks everyone :) I am still a little under the weather but definitely better than I was Sunday & Monday. To join you all with more winter, the weather is predicted to be very chilly tonight. Brrrrr!!!

Jill, I only remember because of the movie. It used to be a big thing when I lived on the mainland in the schools but here in Hawaii, it is mentioned and kids usually react with "HUH?"

Candi, me too! I wonder what happened to Phil during those years? Maybe he just slept in??

menehune, amy, & Palma, I do hope to post something about my class if I ever find the time. I am finally getting more serious about buying a DSLR after only one class so I guess that says something about the class. I really like my teacher. My first photo I had to turn in will be evaluated tomorrow night. I really do like being the teacher more than the student :)

sandrac:

I hope you're feeling better by now, Girasoli -- that sounds really unpleasant and more than just a migraine. Maybe a strange flu bug of some sort? Those can really target the sensitive parts of our bodies (I always get bad neck and knee pain when I get the flu!)

I'm so glad to hear that you're enjoying your photography class AND that you have a great teacher -- as you know, the teacher can make an enormous difference to a student!!!

sandra, I have been sluggish all week but am definitely feeling much better than I felt Sunday & Monday. I finally got a little energy back today. It probably was some sort of weird virus, although I never got a fever.

anne, yes I do agree with you and Sandra - definitely a weird virus but can't figure out what it was. As long as it is gone though, I guess it doesn't really matter. I say BOO also to all the groundhogs and other critters predicting a long winter. We have had a very mild winter here though - hardly any rain and only a couple of cold nights. I read Jerry commenting that you have not had much snow in Canada either this winter (or at least there has not been much where he lives) although it is still cold up north. I know what you mean about dreaming about a trip. I am in the same boat this summer - dreaming instead of going.
