Groundhog Day...Again!

Oh dear I am late to the party again this week. Just a distinct lack of interest unfortunately.

Groundhog Day came and went on February 2nd.
Wiarton Willie, the albino Groundhog from Ontario spotted his shadow and therefore predicted another 6 weeks of Winter, once again this amused me no end as his eye sight cannot be the best surely?!!
As for Shubenacadie Sam in Nova Scotia, he didn't see his and predicted an early Spring...So I guess it came down to the big one, the decider....Punxsatawney Phil in Pennsylvania and he sadly also predicted 6 more weeks of Winter. So there you have it, the reliable, marmot weather predictors have spoken (metaphorically). I would rather hear the weather forecast from them than the actual weather forecasters on the TV any day!

Phil...looking a tad hacked off as he was woken
up and made to predict the weather :o)
I think they only said what we already knew. This Winter has been bad and will continue in the same vein.
As I am typing this update another 20 cm of snow is falling outside, it has become the trend that we get heavy snowfalls on Wednesdays and Sundays...And I for one am sick of it.

The house hunt continues with 2 more viewings last weekend....One of which is promising but slightly over priced. Our poor realtor will need a medal by the end of this, she has had more than one or two coffees with us and spent literally hours listening to Rob and I bickering. One thing for sure she will have earned that commission by the time we buy somewhere.
