Happy Groundhog Day!

Happy Groundhog Day!

It’s a split decision:

Ontario’s Wiarton Willie emerged from his cozy den Sunday morning and immediately spotted his shadow, which according to groundhog folklore means Canadians can expect six more weeks of what has already been a long, cold, snowy winter.

Nova Scotia’s Shubenacadie Sam was the first groundhog out, delivering a promising forecast for winter weary Canucks after he did not see his shadow — signalling an early spring.

I’m deciding to go with Sam on this – we have been so lucky to not experience the extreme weather that eastern Canadians have suffered through this year.  The daffodils in my garden are about 3/4 up so I figure they know what they are doing and spring must be just around the corner.

David’s band, “Vintage” had two great gigs this weekend – in spite of the fact that one singer had laryngitis and the other one was getting sick!  It was great to see Paul and Gwen out on Saturday night.  Their next weekend at the ANAF is in the first week of April.  You all have an open invitation to attend!

We welcome Manpreet Sagal as our permanent extra clerical person in the office this week.  Manpreet’s first day will be on Wednesday.

The lighting upgrade continues in the library this week.  Thanks everyone for your creativity and patience as we try to keep things running!

School year’s half over – can you believe it?
