Groundhog Day, February 2, has long been a favorite holiday of mine. I have especially enjoyed the movie of the¬†same name annually, with Bill Murray. But now I recognize the date for what it was: a pathetic ploy to con myself into surviving another dreadful winter. Why live in place seriously devoid of sun when¬†there is warmth enough to sleep with the windows open all winter just a few thousand miles to the south? (There’s a small pool in the backyard, although not big enough for the guest depicted above.)

Six more weeks of winter¬†is mostly a lie.¬†¬†(*Many northerners also call the groundhog a woodchuck, thus ‘Chucky.)
