February 2024 news

We’re underway to Florida for a stay at Port St Joes in the Panhandle. We’re returning to a favorite destination with our cat Samantha B and our laptops.

February  2, Friday is Groundhog Day. We await a special forecast from a groundhog named Phil. According to legend. Punxsutawney Phil, a 20 pound groundhog in Pennsylvania, makes his weather prediction for the coming season. If it’s sunny and he sees his shadow, it’s said we’ll see six more weeks of winter. If it’s cloudy and he doesn’t see his shadow, the prediction is for an early spring. This tradition is from the Pennsylvania Dutch superstition that if a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day and sees its shadow, it will retreat to its den and winter will go on for six more weeks; if it does not see its shadow, spring will arrive early. Consider the source.
