9 to 11 more weeks of winter

Happy Groundhog Day. Here in Minnesota, it doesn’t matter if the groundhog sees his shadow or not there are at least 9 more weeks of winter. In some parts of the country will have six more weeks of winter if the rodent sees his shadow and less than six weeks of winter if he doesn’t.   If we are lucky here in the metro area mother nature won’t give us a few feet of snow at the end of April so that we have 12 more weeks of winter.

The good news is we don’t need to change time on groundhog day, buy anyone flowers and candy, color hard-boiled eggs or cook a large turkey. All of the stores should be open today and I understand there is some kind of a ball game too.
