The shadow of Punxsutawney Phil, yesterday, was not seen so that means rather than 6 more weeks of winter, the winter will soon be over!!!!!!! While I usually ignore this weather forecaster, especially if his shadow is seen, I take it as a positive sign. True, a coin flip has as good a chance but even a positive flip of the coin would be a promising sign to me. But wait.....that's not all.....
....did you notice....wait for it...............the average day time high temperature has begun to creep back up!!!!!! The lowest day time high cratered back around January 28th but now is tracking, inexorably HIGHER!. Not just here but if you are reading this anywhere in the northern hemisphere, the same holds true for you too. This is however, bad news if you live in places like New Zealand, Madagascar or Chile. This is my recollection from my days at Zanesville High School and that's been a long time ago so I can't say with certainty all of the above is factual.
What I can say with certainty is, the forecast for this weekend is looking pretty good so there will be an abundance of rides popping up on the schedule soon.
