According to Punxsutawney Phil, there will be 6 more weeks of winter. Don't put much stock in groundhogs and their shadows? The lore surrounding Candlemas also points to more frigid weather ahead, if today's blue skies and balmy temperatures are to be believed.
If Candlemas Day be dry and fair,
Half the winter's to come and mair.
If Candlemas Day be wet and foul,
Half o' winter's gane at Yule.
Griff and I plan to find, fill, and hang our bird feeders today. We need to keep the birdies fed through the remaining winter months!
