On February 1st, I went to flip the calendar with fresh snow falling outside.
The forecast, the night before, had called for 1-3 inches.
By noon we had about 5 or 6 inches.
After living here for almost 5 years now, I know that if the forecasters call for "snowmagedon", then we'll get 2 inches.
If they call for 2 inches, we'll get a big snow storm.
Such is life up here in the mountains.
Since I'm always ready for the opposite of what they call for, I was well prepared.
Actually I'm always ready, because I lived in Ohio for 6 years and being prepared is a hard habit to break ;)
So, I just boiled some water in my teapot...
made a cup of tea...
and hunkered down with Mini and Bubba.
They look like they're freezing, don't they?
It's 69 degrees in my home :)
Sure enough the sun came out the next day...
and if Punxsutawney Phil lived here in Arizona, instead of Pennsylvania, he would have seen his shadow on Groundhog day.
I'm pretty much thinking that even though Phil might be getting an early Spring, we'll be getting six more weeks of winter.
Bubba isn't happy with that thought, but at least he's ready ;)
Stay warm, my friends!
