Puxsutawney Phil's prediction ~ No shadow! Spring is near!!

That's good enough for me ... that's what I was waiting to hear this morning ... so it's all systems go!

We're packing up and heading into snow country... ha ha ... Dear Hubby says that's what he's got a big old truck for ... driving in the snow ~ and we're not going to let a little dusting like the midwest states got dumped on them in this last storm get in our way.   If it takes a couple extra days of travel time and we end up hunkered down in a hotel some where .. oh well .. so la be.

We're not strangers to driving in snow.  It's the other guy out there on the road that concerns us.  Hopefully, those people will stay off the roads and let us snowbirds go about our merry way. 

I probably won't be on my blog for a week or so ~ but will update when I can.  In the mean time ... SMILE :)  

Ground hog Phil predicts an early spring!!

Until next time...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
