Our Gordy Groundhog Couldn’t See His Shadow…

Happy Groundhog Day to everyone! According to the news, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow this morning and we will have an early Spring. I write this from snowy New York City, where Deb and I have been participating in a trade show for the gift industry. We see no sign of early Spring here in NYC, and the news from Ohio sounds wintery too. It doesn’t happen often, but Carruth Studio is closed today as Waterville digs out from last night’s storm.

Our own Gordy Groundhog did his best, Gordy-Groundhog-dreams-of-springbut there was no sun to be seen until well after Noon, and that for only a short time. Looks like more winter for us. Poor Gordy Groundhog is hunkering down with the rest of Northwest Ohio and dreaming of Spring warmth and flowers. Gordy is not alone, according to Wikipedia, 6 of 15 groundhogs polled today, predict a longer winter. Of course, the other groundhogs disagree and are predicting an early Spring.

Storms throughout the Midwest and East Coast and cold with rolling power blackouts in Texas. Deb and I are staying warm and enjoying our visit to the Big Apple but we’re looking forward to heading home soon. I’ve got ideas for new designs and am eager to get back to work.

So stay warm and hang in there, wherever you are. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner!
