    :cheesy: Hey that's pretty funny! :cheesy: Ohh.....I mean Uh..... that's terrible;Linda don't make fun of Phil! No Seriously Phil there is a grounghod named Phil. No Kidding. You know when that big fat guy holds onto him and see if there's a shadow.....Personally I think it's a bunch of crap but the fat guy likes to have it every year. Ground hog day with fat man and ground hog.

    OH Phil! I'm sorry, I did not think about the connection. I thought everyone knew about Puxatony (sp) Phil, its a celebration up our way (Feb 13th I think). When Phil doesn't see his shadow it means an early spring, when he does it means 6 more weeks of winter--can't remember the last time he did not see his shadow, and I think they wake him up when its still dark out--go figure.

    Anyhow, sorry, Linda

    I have my VFT's in a mini bog out on the deck. The temp has reached the 70's over the last few days. No signs of breaking the dormant state, however I'm sure these temps have got their attention.

    Ha! That time of year again! Ground Hog Day! I think it is a total fake as if you shine light at the thing it will have a shadow no matter what! So it all depends if it is a sunny day or not what the forecast will be! Soo if you want more winter go to the groundhog and shine a light on him! If you want spring go put blinds around him! My gosh we can fore cast our own weather!
