Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow today and therefore supposedly we will have an early spring. I'd be glad if that ends up happening, since I'm not keen on the cold and from now until this coming Thursday the daytime highs will be hard-pressed to reach the mid-20s, with nighttime temperatures in the low teens and single digits, not counting windchill. And yes, there will be wind -- LOTS of it, according to the weather reports. I therefore did a bunch of grocery shopping today so I won't have to stick my nose outside the door for a few days.
Happy Candlemas! (Or Imbolg, if you prefer to use the Celtic names.)
