February 2nd, AKA Candlemas AKA Groundhog Day was bright and clear here in Seattle. Yup, a groundhog could have easily seen its shadow. I saw mine. According to tradition, that means 6 more weeks of Winter and by the groundhog, that is what we have gotten.

Well, I am finished, tired of snow, cold, the whole thing. How about you? March 20th is the Vernal Equinox and the first day of Spring. Equinox is derived from the Latin words equal and night meaning that the day and night are equal again and we are heading to longer days. Whoopee! Let’s celebrate Spring!
