“Okay, campers, rise and shine, and don’t forget your booties ’cause it’s cooooold out there today.” ~ Groundhog’s Day

Everyone loves good news. This morning, skiers and snowboarders across the nation received a heavy dose of it thanks to a lovable little groundhog by the name of Punxsutawney Phil.

According to tradition if Phil emerges from his dwelling and sees his shadow it means we will experience 6 more weeks of winter conditions. While it may not have been the forecast some were hoping for, skiers and snowboarders across the nation rejoiced to hear that the little critter did indeed see his shadow and thus predicts at least 6 more weeks of glorious winter!
