"If Candlemas day be sunny and bright, winter will have another flight: if Candlemas day it be showre and rain, winter is gone, and won't come again." - old English proverb
It's Candlemas day (I think), and it's not sunny and bright. Or, more to the point it's Marmot's Day (that's Groundhog's Day to all you non-Rocky Mountain folk), and our marmot didn't see it's shadow. So, supposedly, spring is on it's way.
We do have less snow, and ice than we did yesterday, but I don't think I'll pack up the tuques and parkas just yet though (and no, we don't actually call them that here - but doesn't it sound wintry?). Spring doesn't generally hit Montana until after Mother's Day.
Then again, maybe this is the year the global warming gurus finally get their say!
It's great to be a homeschooler.
