The ground hog said spring was coming

but the snow falling outside my window

begs to differ.

    Aw, come on…snow falling here means it is not too cold…and we need it for the maple trees and spring time Cabane à sucre:)

    • I’m totally in favour of erable in all forms. 🙂

      • Cheryl-Lynn Says:

        haha…I hear you have had more snow than usual in BC too. But if the groundhog says spring is over in 6 weeks I AM all for that. It is in the minus 10 to 12 here but feels likes -20 with the humidity and wind) I`m fed up of the weather now…want to walk out hte door quickly without putting on my long johns, my warm boots, down filled coat, scarf, mits, hat…brrrrr j’en ai marre!!!

      • My condolences. I will whine less. It was down to -10 here today, but I didn’t have hat or scarf on while going back and forth to work, just a hood, gloves, high boots, (and cold feet and hands!) 😉

      • Cheryl-Lynn Says:

        Oh wow!!! that is so cold for BC!! A colleague moved to our Vancouver office and she says she feels like she is back home in Québec 🙂 Get one of those eternity scarves…they are a saver and they look cool too:)

      • Well, for the coast it would be especially cold, but I live in the Interior, an hour from the Rockies, so it’s not so strange for us.

      • Cheryl-Lynn Says:

        Well then, get that eternity scarf. All winter clothes are on sale now. This is the time of year I may get boots at 75% off. My mom trained me well. 😉

    You just can’t trust those groundhogs. 😄

  3. Yep, we have 1 1/2 inches and it’s still falling, lol

  4. He’s an eastern groundhog. He knows nothing of British Columbia.

  5. Simon Says:

    Those ground hogs are unreliable!

  6. I should not drink any beverage while reading a short poem like this. I nearly choked laughing! When I see that groundhog I’m going to give him/her a piece of my mind! I got snow outside my window too!

    I’ve never been witness to a Canadian conversation before😅! That’s sounding a bit ignoramus on my part🤔. Anywho, that whole groundhog tradition needs to be put to bed! Poor things need to go to a retirement home and refuse to be commissioned ever again.
