Celtic Quarter Festival

Just a piece of useless trivia: Groundhog Day is a vestige of the Celtic festival of the goddess Brigid (Feb. 1st). Originally, her festival on February 1 was known as Imbolc or Oimelc, two names which refer to the lactation of the ewes, the flow of milk that heralds the return of the life-giving forces of spring.
Later, the Catholic Church replaced this festival with Candlemas Day on February 2, which is dedicated to the Virgin Mary and features candlelight processions. The powerful figure of Brigid the Light-Bringer overlights both pagan and Christian celebrations. You could say her day marks the beginning of the end of winter.
All youse who are in the grips of yet another snowstorm can take comfort that the days are now 10hrs. 22min. long and spring IS on the way.

Your resident Celt,
Teach

JohnB is on a distinguished road
So that is how you spell his name.... Punxsutawney

Around here it's Buckeye Chuck. His hole may have been froze over with ice.... last night was brutal. Then the temp rose to 40F…. around 04:00AM saved some of the trees and now we are back towards heading to 10F…tonight…. Looked outside last night before we went to bed at our white birch tree about totally collapsed. Then around 4:00AM I heard all this crunching going on it woke me up. Thought for sure the tree was dying a slow death of all the branches breaking off. At 6:00 I look out and the ice is all gone on the tree…. The crunching was the ice breaking off… the drive way is still a frozen pond.

Spring cannot come fast enough…

Cool pic's Bill. Thanks for sharing. I bet you held those pics all year just for this post!

John

We also have a lot of photos we took around Punxsutawney. We were invited to an Airstream bring a friend rally back in August and had no idea how close we were to Punxsutawney. Turned out we were less than 30 miles away and we had an extra day so figured why not go over for a visit since we were so close.

I don't think he made it out of his hole yet, too many layers of snow and ice and snow and ice and today rain which is now a one inch layer of ice in my driveway.

I don't expect to see my front yard until sometime in June.

Here in Missouri, as transplanted Pennsylvanians, we too are glad old Philsy didn't see his shadow. Coldest winter and most snow we have seen since moving here in '79. We still have about a foot of the 20 inches of snow we got last week. We had planned on a trip to Galveston for a couple weeks but have delayed that due to the snow. Still plan to go soon. I'm going to help with the restoration of the WWII Submarine USS Cavalla and Jan will do some quilting in between getting warm again and sight seeing.
