I always found it fascinating and fun to see my favorite little ground hog on the television. The whole affair of predicting the weather without radar, Doppler and satellites is amusing. Seeing Punxsutawney’s handlers all dressed up with their suits and top hats has always brought a smile to my face. I mean, who wants another 6 weeks of winter, right? All that cold, windy, snowy stuff to deal with is not fun. Well, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow this morning so there is 6 more weeks of winter for folks in other parts of the country. The good news (and don’t ruin it for the little ones) is he is only 40% accurate. I heard he took the first flight to Florida he could today to get out of the cold!
We don’t really worry about 6 more weeks of winter in Central Florida. We had a freeze for a couple of nights last week and they tell us one of those nights was the coldest in 4 years. It was pretty cold! However, as it always happens in Florida it warms back up again. Tomorrow we are going to experience 80 degrees and sunshine! I have a lunch date with a colleague tomorrow. I am going to head over in my golf cart because I can. Talk to you soon!
