It’s this wintery time of year that gets to me the most and I pray every Groundhog Day for clouds. I know that even if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow, my miserable Chicago winter will be too long no matter what!
As a side note, I live in Woodstock, IL, where the Groundhog Day with Bill Murray was filmed. This holiday is a BIG DEAL around here thanks to that movie! We have our own groundhog (Woodstock Willie) and we do our own “prognostication” cold and early on the morning on February 2nd. It includes a wonderful winter festival the last weekend in January as well. So this holiday holds a special place in my heart!
