According to an article at MSN – The Punxsutawney Groundhog Club made their decree Thursday morning in central Pennsylvania: Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, and there’ll be six more weeks of winter. The announcement was met with boos from the enormous crowd gathered in Punxsutawney.
My question is what winter? Never mind winter but this whole snow season has been a bust so far. Records of warmer than normal temperatures are being set all over the country most likely. As for snow, what snow? To think people let out gasps and whines when they heard the news seems to go against the way the weather has been so far. I think it should have been whines and gasps if he didn’t see his shadow. That could have ended a good thing, the weather pattern that the US has had so far this winter. For those that don’t like the snow at least.
This by far has been the most boring updates I’ve done since keeping the stats the last couple of seasons. A few jumps in the slopes here and there but no big snow for any of the cities. I will agree with the rodent though. I think within the next 7 – 10 days that jet stream that has been hanging to the north of the US will start dropping and when it does I think it may stick around for a bit. Hopefully at least through March. Keep an eye on the Colorado cities as they should be picking up some snow in some of the cities. If it pans out that they get some decent snow I’ll update them again to see how they gain on Anchorage.
Have a Great Weekend All
