Groundhog's day -- confusion...

So, the rodent saw his shadow.

The myth is that times he sees his shadow are times winter lasts for 6 more weeks.

That sounds pretty good to me -- Winter ending sometime in mid-March? - sign me up.

oh wait -- that was the 'bad' news... yea, right, like winter would end before then otherwise? I think not.

Until I lived in Colorado I considered March a winter month -- along with November.... March isn't spring and November isn't fall -- really... no wonder Groundhogs day confused me as a kid.

Yeah, where I live it's 10 more weeks of winter regardless of what the rodent says!!!

When I lived in WI, winter regularly went through May. The rodent has no say.
