It's THANKFUL Thursday!
With all the bad weather we've been having here I'm very thankful that on the 125th anniversary of Groundhog's Day in Punxsutawney, Pa., groundhog Phil failed to see his shadow Wednesday morning at 7:25 a.m
According to folklore, no shadow for Phil means that there will be an early spring. Ohio's own Buckeye Chuck and Punxsutawney Phil did not see their shadows Wednesday morning, meaning they are both predicting an early spring
That does give us a little hope anyway, but it'll take awhile for all this snow and ice to disappear. Our weather forecast for the week ahead is for very cold and snowy days so I'm not sure when this early Spring might kick in.
I'm also thankful that our power remained on. In this freezing cold weather there were many without it in our state due to the freezing sleet and rain we had. Most of our homes have central heat and our furnaces cannot run with out electric power. That is something I've meant to rectify but haven't done so yet. There is no fireplace here at my house nor is there room for one. I'm thinking there must be a way I can heat at least part of my home without electric so that is what I'll be researching in the days ahead.
Winter is no longer a joking matter. Up to your patootie in snow? Escape by planning for Spring. It helps the psyche, believe me I'll be THINKING SPRING even if it's not here yet. Better days are ahead!
I hope that this Thursday will find you with something to be THANKFUL for too!
