Happy Groundhog Day!

“Alas! must it ever be so? Do we stand in our own light, wherever we go, And fight our own shadows forever?” – Edward Lytton

To Do Today:   Don’t be afraid of your shadow – “Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.” – Maori Proverb

 

According to folklore, if it is cloudy when the groundhog emerges from its burrow, it leaves the burrow, signifying that winter will soon end.

If it is sunny, the groundhog sees its shadow and retreats back into its burrow, and winter will continue for six more weeks.
