For the first time since 1999 Phil has seen his shadow! Not that I put much stock in this old German superstition, but just the thought of early spring gets me excited! Go Phil! Hooray for early spring!

"Phil Says Spring is Right Around the Corner!

Phil's official forecast as read 2/2/07 at 7:28 a.m. at Gobbler's Knob:

El Nino has caused high winds, heavy snow, ice and freezing temperatures in the west.
Here in the East with much mild winter weather we have been blessed.

Global warming has caused a great debate.
This mild winter makes it seem just great.

On this Groundhog Day we think of one thing.
Will we have winter or will we have spring?

On Gobbler's Knob I see no shadow today.
I predict that early spring is on the way."

I am SO wanting to do some gardening. It has been chilly down here (chilly for me) and I am looking forward to some sunshine and warmer temps to plant some flowers! Come, spring, come!
