Are you familiar with that movie with Bill Murray, where he wakes up and it's Groundhog Day over and over and over? We have a tradition with my parents that we watch it every year. Of course, a week after the first time we watched it together, the power went out for 8 days. Every day seemed the same that week: wake up in the cold, make a fire, haul wood, haul water, make coffee, shovel snow, rinse and repeat.
We watched it again on Saturday. Punxatawney Phil did not see his shadow this year, thus we are promised an early Spring. I doubt it. And it's been snowing ever since. Here we go again: shovel snow, slide sideways down the driveway in the van, rinse and repeat.
Sigh. I REALLY dislike February.
