Groundhog Days #WordlessWednesday

On March 19, the last full day of winter, spouse and I took an exercise walk on the Vestal Rail Trail.

Didn't the groundhog in Pennsylvania say we would have six more weeks of winter?  That was on February 2 and six weeks later, we had our first taste of spring.

The snow had mostly melted last week, revealing a groundhog burrow in front of a remaining patch of snow.  The entrance looked freshly dug.

The groundhog peeked out.  Was it safe? It drew back in as we approached.

But then, it came out.  I wonder what it is predicting.

Is spring here for good?  I don't see a shadow, but, nevertheless, winter is back .  We are back to the cold weather.  For now, anyway.

  2. We had winter last weekend and Tuesday is was 81 degrees here. I'm not going to fall for spring is here either.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

  3. Obviously on the cusp! Waiting for our first glimpse...

  4. I guess that with the warm weather arriving, the groundhog isn’t afraid to show his face …

  5. Never see in life a groundhog burrow. Nice to 'meet' it here!
    Happy WW and a fine week!

  6. We're back to the cold weather too! Oh well, spring is here and before we know it, the days will be warm and beautiful.

  7. Oh wow. They are real! Carol C

  8. We have had good weather the past week getting into the low 60s and it should last beyond the weekend. Nights are still cold though at 32-34.

  9. I don't think the winter weather will last much longer.

  10. Ha-Ha, great capture! Glad to hear spring is returning to your neck of the woods. :)

  11. It been raining here in Idaho.
    Coffee is on and stay safe
