Have You Had Your "Phil" of Winter Yet?

Today was Groundhog Day, and I heard the report from Pennsylvania (where it's an hour later than here) even as I was waking up this morning: Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow today, which is supposed to mean six more weeks of winter.

I don't mind the cooler temperatures as long as we don't have the kind of winter that we had here last week, and I'm sure the folks in Kentucky and southern Indiana (some of whom evidently haven't even been allowed back in their houses yet) don't want more of the same.

So what do you think--was Phil correct? And what would you like to see: Six more weeks of winter, or an early spring?

Blowing out the candles: Happy birthday to my friend and fraternity brother Kevin.

Hey, Kev,

Here in Minnesota, we'd be positively thrilled if winter weather was gone in six weeks!

Oh, I can imagine; between getting regular reports from my buddy in Wisconsin and reading Lileks every day, I hear what you guys go through up there on a regular basis...
