    Punxsutawney Phil did NOT see his shadow this morning so it looks to be an early Spring.

    Gosh I really hope so. I'm done with this cold and I got a bad case of camp fever. I'm still hesitant to make reservations for early spring trip for fear he is going to be wrong.

    I hope we get that early Spring!!! These temperature swings we are having are getting really old. It was -10F the other night and this Tuesday they call for a high of 56F [?:~{]
    I'm looking forward to those temps!!

    I agree about the temperature swings - causing havok with my sleep.

    I have my reservations for my March campout - rain or shine bring it on! [rly]

    Just wanted to share this interesting fact. Feb 2 to Mar 21 is approximately 6 weeks. The whole Groundhog thing is just to get our hopes up.

    I hope he was right, we are sick of the winter, especially all the rain. However there is another ground hog (shown on Weather channel) , somewhere else that did see his shadow so it can go either way :) but as we all know Mama nature does as she pleases anyway.

    I'm good with an early Spring. Didn't get to camp much last year due to family obligations so the bug is biting even harder this year!!

    Punxsutawney Phil is the official groundhog. The rest are impostors. [:)C]
