Early Spring, So Says Phil

Yes, it is my favorite holiday of the year today…. Groundhog’s Day or St. Brigid’s Day (yesterday)!
Phil’s prediction for 2007:

Phil Says Spring is Right Around the Corner!
Phil’s official forecast as read 2/2/07 at 7:28 a.m. at Gobbler’s Knob:
El Nino has caused high winds, heavy snow, ice and freezing temperatures in the west.
Here in the East with much mild winter weather we have been blessed.
Global warming has caused a great debate.
This mild winter makes it seem just great.
On this Groundhog Day we think of one thing.
Will we have winter or will we have spring?
On Gobbler’s Knob I see no shadow today.
I predict that early spring is on the way.

The Northwest and Northern California may have seen a heavy, wet, and cold winter this year, but here in SoCal we have only had one good rain in October and one last week. SoCal has been very dry and quite warm, until the January cold snap. Phil – we need rain. Will you please do a dance for SoCal today?
In other notes, congratulations to the Brigidine Sisters on their bicentennial anniversary this year! May you keep the fires of St. Brigid lit, may your compassion and peace go before you!
