Groundhog Day a la Mugwump

February 2nd.  The day that seals the seasonal destiny of temperate climate zones everywhere.  And it’s all left up to a skittish overgrown gopher from Pennsylvania.  I’ve never even been to Pennsylvania.

So this year, I’m deciding.  I am the maker of my own winter destiny! And guess what?  I was up and out the door before the sun even got a chance to wave it’s shadow casting finger at the metal and glass creatures of the downtown, much less myself, and certainly not a rodent.  No shadows.  No frightened mugwump.  No hiding in my Mugwump Cave for another 6 weeks.

It’s official! you heard it here first! Winter is over!

(Never you mind the 2 inches of fresh, slippery snow that fell last night.)
