Groundhog Update!!

Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow and thus forecasts an early spring.

They should have found a local frog...would have gotten a much better prediction!

I am surprised a groundhog even poked his head out today with the horrific storms.

HAHA! Oh well. Back to the drawing board.

With all of the extensive media coverage of the Midwest blizzard,an extreme cold event in the Southwest has gone virtually unnoticed.Today,Phoenix,Arizona was colder (44 degree max,a record) than Juneau, Alaska (46).A record low of 27 is expected tommorow morning.Tucson is going for 18; any colder and a new monthly, not daily, record will be set.There may be some serious crop damage as a result.Buy your veggies soon;prices could be going up!

Meanwhile, all we can disgustingly look forward to is more of the semi-permanent "dirty" ridge and some dying warm fronts for excitement.I`m still hoping for some major retrogression in the ridge,but it sure looks questionable.Well,at least it dried up enough the past week or so for me to dig and plant my peas today.

So are these microscale, mesoscale or macroscale predictions?

How did your job interview go with the Farmers Almanac?
