ABOUT PHIL...

UP DATE: Yep, Phil says 6 more weeks of winter, But he doesn't mean here in northwestern Pa. Last year we got our last snow the 3rd week of April. At least they say we have missed the big storm. Looking at maybe 4 inches tomorrow. For this area, thats not much at all. Prayers going out for our friends in Kentucky. Rain is on the way and maybe that will help to defrost some of the ice!

I have to interrupt my blog give-away for something very important....bet you think I mean the Super Bowl? NOPE! Here in Pennsylvania we are on a count down. GroundHog Day is a big thing here. I don't live far from Phil's home, Punxsutawney, Pa. If Phil doesn't do a good job, I might hunt him down and give him a time out..forever!
For those of you who don't know about Phil, just go to his site and read all about him. If nothing else, it will give you a good laugh!

The latest snow/ice photo from today. I don't think Phil stands a chance!

Holee, I was born and raised in Punsxutawney, and all my family still live there. I will be wearing my Punxsy Phil t-shirt to work tomorrow to continue to share the fun of Phil. I always make gingerbread groundhog cookies for that day too.

Dear Bea,

Got up early to see if Phil saw his shadow! Then looked outside....we got snow overnight.
...crying outloud! Well, it's just a little bit, I could sweep it away!
My family bought me the movie,
Groundhog's Day - because I'd watch it every time it was on, enduring all the long commercials!
Someone at the News channel has a descendant of Phil (a fact, I dunno!), but I got to meet him/her.
What a little (big)star!!

6 more weeks of winter?!!

So, did you go shot ole Phil, I sure hope not. Is Phil's predictions usually accurate, I pray that if it is still another 6 weeks at least is isn't as bad has what it has been. Praying the sun shines soon for all. Donna

Holee,
You need help hunting him down? We can always use a plea of insanity due to cabin fever! :D
On a side note: I am picking up Chris at 4pm so SHE can come do her own laundry! LOL I don't think she was happy with that, but... OH WELL! :)
I really liked your idea of finding something red to put into the whites though! LOL
