Is it spring now? I guess we should wait until Monday to find out what the GroundHogs say. 🙂

  1. Mr Groundhog might have to dig his sidewalk out first… I see they are calling for 5-10cm of snow Sunday night, which really means anytime between now and Tuesday. 😉

  2. Yikes! I received a realy neat Mariner weather gizmo for Christmas….a little prehistoric but what fun wathcing the liquid rise and fall as many times as it has today. Very cool. Have had enough of the snow tho’ I don’t think it will ever melt.

  3. Buds? Where are the buds? Methinks the groundhog’s gonna be diggin’ his way out of the snow that’s fallin’ right now!

  4. Its called a Mariner weather glass.

    by Lee Valley Tools. Just type mariner weather glass in your google search.

  5. I think our illustrious groundhog out here is gonna be too busy bailing his hole out to look for his shadow! As of 2pm Ukee time we’ve got 64mm of rain, with no end to rainfall in sight. Guess I’d better get busy installing the water wings on the truck!!!
