February has arrived and we all know what that means! Groundhog Day! Every year on February 2nd the groundhog emerges to answer the much-awaited question, shadow or no shadow? If he sees his shadow six more weeks of winter are upon us while no shadow predicts an early spring. As I scanned the headlines for groundhog sightings it became very clear that there would not be a simple answer. Pennsylvania’s Punxsutawney Phil emerged to see his shadow and predicted six more weeks of winter. However, my home state of Georgia’s Gen. Beauregard Lee emerged to no shadow predicting an early spring. As I scanned on I discovered that wikipedia.org has been compiling a Predictions of Various Groundhogs list since 2008.   I’ll let you decide if bundling up for six more weeks or preparing for spring is in your future. As for me… Georgia’s Gen. Beauregard Lee’s emerged to no shadow predicting an early spring!
