Always ready for my next Big Adventure-this time farming. Always a mother, grandmother, writer, boat captain... Now living in SE Michigan learning my way around John Deere tractors and combines and weeds in the garden.

So Phil saw his shadow and that means 6 more weeks of winter. Well as long as the sun shines during the 6 weeks who cares?!

No doubt this has been a snowy winter here in the Midwest but my feeling is that if we are going to be in the Winter season let it snow. I love the whiteness and being able to track what has walked through the yard.

If I get up during the night I look out to see if there are any bunnies or deer cruising around. We even had deer prints at the window-were they watching us sleep?

At least by putting our faith in Phil we leave behind all the high technology of forecasting. After all, only weather men (and women) can be wrong 50% of the time or more and still get paid!

I don't think weather men or women have that good of a percentage. Besides what could be more high tech than a rodent seeing his shadow and forecasting the weather. Maybe we should try other animals for other predictions. What would be a good animal to predict when the economy will turn around? Now that would be of useful.
Six more weeks of winter? When I lived in Pennsylvania I didn't care. I still don't. We here in Southern California smile smugly.

Perhaps a rat for the financial predictions? Certainly some type of rodent!
A rat would work or perhaps a donkey or one of those little chipmunks that stuff their little faces with seeds.
