Sherry sees her shadow

German tradition holds that if a hibernating animal sees its shadow on Feb. 2 — the Christian holiday of Candlemas — winter will last another six weeks. If no shadow is seen, legend says spring will come early.

Okay, so why a groundhog? Why not a moose in Canada or a bear in some faraway forest...although I guess it has to be a hibernating animal so the moose is out. But why Pennsylvania? Why not Arkansas or Balch Springs? Why not Dallas, Texas...where I saw my shadow today at lunch. Doesn't winter last longer in Minnesota than in Texas no matter what the groundhog says? If Phil sees his shadow, who does he tell? What if somebody is standing over him casting their shadow...then what? I'm just sayin...watercooler talk today. Pathetic, huh.
