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.
