Hello, friends!  Our friend Punxsutawney Phil was pulled from his burrow in Gobbler's Knob this morning.

Poor Phil.  I always feel sorry for our little groundhog.  He was sound asleep and suddenly some man grabs him and pulls him out of his bed.  I wouldn't like it if someone did that to me!

Most of the time Phil sees his shadow.  How can he not with all the lights and cameras flashing at him.

But our boy Phil was on our side this year.  He didn't see his shadow and told us there will be an early spring.  After all this cold weather we've had the past week this is good news!  Thanks, Phil!



  1. I always thought the same thing! I think I would have bit someone.I Phil able to go back to sleep? Just sayin...

  2. I wish our 'Chattanooga Chuck' had been as cooperative as Phil, but he did see his shadow so we know what we have to look forward to for 6 more weeks!

  3. As we say up heah, “only” six more weeks of winter. It could be soooooo much worse. 😏

  4. For me an early spring might include an early summer, which can get pretty hot!

  5. Hi Kathy! Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting. I'm going to follow yours and maybe learn how to retire! I'm looking that direction at the end of this year. Take care!

  6. we shall see what happens! The weather radar in Portland quit working tonight. Now we won't know if there will be snow in the a.m. Just look out the window!!!
