It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Six more weeks?

So it seems the rodent crew are all agreed. Wiarton Willie, Schubenacadie Sam and Punxsutawney Phil all saw their fuzzy shadows this morning, meaning that there will be six more weeks of winter. Had they NOT seen their shadows, spring would have come early.

To which I say, “???????” Is there a more pointless event for Canadians than Groundhog Day? Why on earth do we bother?

Six weeks from today is March 16. March sixteenth! If spring were to show its delicate face in these parts on March 16?

That would be early. And March 16 is the later option?

Jeez. I hope the hairy little wretch is right.

But I has ma doots…
