Groundhog Day & Snow (Again)

It's unlikely that any groundhog in the northeast saw its shadow today. That's especially true in Nashua, NH, where there's nearly 4 feet of snow.


Not only would a groundhog NOT see its shadow, it would have to dig itself out first!



Total snow amount from last Tuesday's storm was 33.5 inches with an added 10-14 inches from today's snowstorm.


BUT, even though the groundhog failed to see its shadow, this robin was seen over the weekend, digging in a snowbank?


Grenville and I are staying indoors today . He makes (and enjoys) pancakes on snowy days  and so do I.


Later tonight, we're continuing our annual tradition of watching this film (again).
How about you — any Groundhog Day plans?

Isn't that a Groundhog disguised as a Robin?????? Sure looks like one to me..... But then maybe i've been working out on the un-sun porch to long today...
Your Grenville

No idea why they do the groundhog thing. We in the north, know there is no way we are ever going to have an early Spring!!

Gill in Canada, with no where near as much snow as you!

HI Dorothy!
Thet "pancake" looks suspiciously like a sausage." But maybe you New Englanders shape them different up there. Heh-heh. Rain and slushy snow here. Windy. Sloppy mess. Puxy Phil saw his shadow, so was frightened and ran back inside -thus six more weeks of winter. I thought that's how it worked. No?
If you care to, take a gander at my latest post to see what's up here.

Wow, you have a lot of snow! That is a very brave robin. Pancakes sound good! :)

Groundhog Day is a brilliant movie. It never gets old. I actually reviewed it on my writer's blog a year ago today.

The robin's quite brave indeed!

I am still chuckling here. Grenville looks like he's eating a cigar instead of a sausage.

I think it saw its shadow, but at 11 degrees raced back into its den. I can't even get the dogs to go out this morning.
