February 2nd - Ground Hog Day

You know if you google groundhog recipes there are quite a few out there!

The stinker saw his shadow and therefore has predicted 6 more weeks of winter.  Should I then be surprised that tomorrow we will be in the path of another 5-7 inches of snow and an icy mess on Wednesday?  I can tolerate the snow more than the ice.  Ice is just too treacherous all around.  

I painted this groundhog back in 1993.  Hard to believe that was over 20 years ago and he's still hanging around.  Well, I guess if you only come out once a year you can stay pretty well preserved. 
See, this guy is perpetually predicting an early spring because his shadow is behind him.  Maybe we should just ignore Phil and go by Mr. Blue Jeans from now on.
