Happy Groundhog Day…again. So what did Punxsuwtaney Phil foresee in our future winter/spring weather forecast? — If Phil saw his shadow, then there will be six more weeks of wintry weather. If not, then it looks like we’re due for an early spring.

One way or the other, just use your best judgment in the coming weeks concerning the weather and play it by ear.
Sometimes you gotta make sure people get the message loud and clear.
