Groundhog Day Blizzard

It seems that Phil in Punxsutawney, PA did not see his shadow either.

Any groundhog leaving its burrow in Michigan this morning would not have seen its shadow.  If winter ends early, as predicted by the groundhog, it would be good news to all of us now digging out from under at least a foot of new snow.  My 5 am “don’t come to work” phone call let me sleep a few extra hours.  When I did finally crawl out of bed, I put on my Ice Trekkers and braved the heavy snow.

Ice Trekkers, snow treads for your shoes. A Christmas gift from my brother.

No one is going anywhere for a while.

Our forecast here in Michigan is for the snow to pass and the clouds to start clearing later tonight.  We are supposed to have partly cloudy skies tomorrow.  Thank goodness the groundhog said winter is ending soon.  I’m not sure how much more of this I can take.
