IT’S GROUNDHOG DAY!!! – Early Spring Or Six More Weeks?

February 4th Update:

Since I made you all read an extra post Saturday, I’m not posting a new post today.  Enjoy visiting all the blogs who hosted Phyllis – they all did such a great job! – and feel free to join in yourself if you’d like to – you have until tonight! 🙂



GROUNDHOG DAY!  The favorite day of your friend and mine, Punxsutawney Phyllis 🙂

Phyllis knows no better way to celebrate anything than with a party in her honor, so today we will all be entertaining ourselves, each other, and Phyllis with Phyllis’s Fun Photo Contest.

The challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to download the Phyllis action figure, color her in, and then photograph her today predicting Spring 2013 in your neck of the woods.  For full rules and prize, see HERE.

But first, no party is really in full swing without cake…

Groundhog Day cupcakes anyone? 🙂

Now then.  Let’s step outside, shall we?  And see what Punxsutawney Phyllis, Sage of Sages, Seer of Seers, Prognosticator of Prognosticators, and Weather Prophet Extraordinaire, has to say about the coming of Spring 2013!!!

She was prepared for anything – rain or snow or sleet…

She was hoping for sunbathing weather…

A quick check told Phyllis that is was a nippy 10 degrees, with clear blue skies and sunshine on the way…

recognize this Phyllis – created by the very talented Julie in CO? 🙂

In the final analysis, however, Punxsutawney Phyllis emerged from her burrow on Blueberry Hill at 7:25 AM on this February 2, 2013…

… and declared, “No shadow!  EARLY SPRING!!!!”

Even Uncle Phil had to agree 🙂

On the Sundial Bridge in Redding, California, Linda reports that Phyllis also saw no shadow and predicts an early spring!

So what’s happening in your neck of the woods?

Quick!  Get your photo on your blog and your post-specific blog link on the list below so we can come see Phyllis predicting spring all over the world!  (And again, if you, like Linda above, do not have a blog, feel free to send my your picture and I’ll add it to this post with your weather caption, location, and name :))

I can’t wait to see all the pictures!  And Phyllis REALLY can’t wait!  She loves this day which is all about her!

Have a great weekend, everyone!  HAPPY GROUNDHOG DAY!!!

    That's because you're so bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and up earlier on Saturday mornings than the rest of us old fogies 🙂

    I can't remember if I commented on how much I think your pictures should win or not. But I do! Hope you still have power. (You need coffee and the other things we mentioned.) Hahaha.

  5. Susanna Leonard Hill says:

    So far so good with the power, but we're getting about an inch and hour now, so who knows how long the power will last? As for the photos, if you're saying you think mine should win, that is not possible! I'm never in these contests – I just do examples 🙂 But thank you for liking them 🙂 And truly, I think your video is going to be pretty hard to beat 🙂
