Midwest Groundhog Day Prediction - Early Spring
The sun is shining brightly here today and so if the groundhogs came out they would in fact have seen their shadow and we would be in for six more weeks of Winter weather.
The appropriate word there is IF....
It's also like 8 degrees this morning with a light covering of snow and ice from yesterday and last night. Everything is frozen stiff and no self respecting ground hog would be coming out of his or her lair under these conditions. If left to their own devices and common sense they certainly would not be seeing any shadows today.
Believe me I was ready too. I went out and found one of their holes and was waiting there to put the rodent into the cross hairs before it could see any shadows but there was no need.
In case it warms up a bit before the sun goes down I did roll a hay bale over the hole so the rodent won't be coming out anytime soon.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
