Eat your heart out, Punxsutawney

Punxsutawney Phil should be happy.

We’re on the cusp of his big day, and the only thing everyone is talking about is the weather.

Tonight we put January in the rear-view mirror. Unfortunately, February will roll in pretty much the same way January did.

We’re getting more snow. I’m not making this up.

It’s supposed to start snowing sometime after midnight tonight. We’re likely going to get maybe an inch or two out of this storm. So February arrives in the same manner that made January so much fun.

We’ll pile the overnight snow on top of the 37.2 inches of snow that have fallen so far in this God-forsaken winter.

It’s apparently not exactly going to clear up in time for Punxsutawney to have his annual moment in the sun – or shadow as the case may be.

The guess here is that he sees his shadow on his exit from his burrow and this miserable weather continues unabated.

We’re due to get freezing rain turning into just rain on Wednesday.

Enjoy it, Phil.

Anything you can do to precipitate (that’s a little weather prognosticating humor there) spring would be greatly appreciated.

In the meantime, Punxsutawney has nothing on the Great Heron’s Snow Prognosticating Event.

I can’t count any of those flurries we got over the weekend as a real snow.

So for now the count stands at 3 storms since I prognosticated that we would have 9 more before spring arrives on March 20.

Looks like No. 4 might on tap tonight.
