Shadows on Groundhog Day

According to ancient folklore if a groundhog emerges from his burrow on a cloudy day and retreats back to his winter home then spring will arrive early.

Should the groundhog emerge February 2nd on a beautiful winter sunny day, and sees his winter-self in shadow, thus retreating back in fear, then it’s said winter will last another six weeks.

Here’s to a cloudy day this Groundhog day. Greetings and salutations from a cloudy and cold, winter in Sardinia.

I can’t wait for summer, you?
