It’s Coming

Only a few short days until our national appreciation of marmots reaches its cumulative and explosive end.  Groundhog day coincides loosely with the Celtic festival Imbolc, which marked a seasonal turning point.  The holiday is also said to have its origin in the European tradition wherein a badger or bear was the weather forecaster of choice.  It is our uniquely American decision to place the celebration squarely on the shoulders of a glorious land beaver.  The clock is ticking. America’s no-holds, riotous, feel good, weather carnival is at hand.  Prepare yourselves.
