I sure wish they would stop telling me to add a title so I could come up with one of my own, but as long as WP says “Add Title” I guess I’ll have to continue to do a title series.
It was so nice here yesterday that I went out for a short drive, drinking in the 66 degree F that we had. After a couple of weeks of single digit temps it was wonderful and since the forecast was for the rain that we are having today it looked like the only time for enjoying some sunshine and warmer weather. And today I’m hoping the rest of the forecast will be wrong since the weather people say freezing rain and snow for tonight. Anybody else tired of winter?
According to a groundhog if Pennsylvania we have six more weeks of winter ahead. Just when did we all get so wrapped up in what a silly overfed groundhog has to say? My apologies to the people in Punxsutawney for denigrating your groundhog. I’m sure there is a reason for us to give credence to whether he sees his shadow or not, and he probably has more weather sense than most of the forecasters we put our faith in every day but why not use the lowly woolly worm? You know, the darker the wool the harder the winter?
Well, I’m not sure if any of the meteorologist’s with all of their fancy equipment can really know about what is going to happen weatherwise, but I do have some faith left with the animal kingdom. If the weather is going to be bad they take measures to protect themselves while we two legged members turn on the TV weather and at least in my case, pretend to know just what a bunch of lines on some graph paper really mean. I also think we could all be weather forecasters. Just go outside and look up and around. If you are standing in a puddle that is getting deeper and you see drops of water coming from the sky then it is raining. If nothing coming from a sunny sky you should probably call the water people to ask about a possible water pipe leak or a water main break. Same with snow: cold and white stuff all around and still coming down you can bet it is snowing. I guess that makes us all capable of being weather forecasters.
I hope all of this comes out okay. I’m feeling adventurous today in spite of the weather, so these photos all came from Pixels.com. They are all out of line on this area so I’m anxious to see if they work in the regular post. Ya all have a good day and Happy Groundhogs Day to all the groundhogs out there.
