Happy Groundhog Day!

Well, Punxatawny Phil says we're going to have six more weeks of winter. He saw his shadow this morning. While in many parts of the country, this would be a bad thing, in Vermont, it means we're going to have an early spring. I have seen robins around all winter long, and yesterday it was nearly 50 degrees out. Chris broke up all the ice in the driveway and the ice on the front stoop melted all by itself.

While it's snowing lightly right now at 8:40 am, it's not supposed to accumulate. This has been an unusual winter - frequent little bursts of snow, very little accumulation. Cross country skiiers and snowmobilers are upset, but the ski areas can still make snow. Chris says no one he knows has been ice fishing either. Oh, well. No matter what the weather, every day is a good day for quilting!

we have had a mild winter as well, in the 60's all this week! if we get winter it will be short bursts of cold followed by spring time temps.
