Happy Imbolc, St. Brigid's Day, Candlemas, Groundhogs Day

Apparently Candlemas/Imbolc/St. Brigid's Day has, folklorically speaking, been used as a day to predict the weather, probably how it ended up at the same time as Groundhog's Day. 

In any case, the days are noticeably longer, not appreciably warmer or less snowy, but this winter too, shall pass.

NFO-These are winters as I remember them. We're having to do the scoop and dump on snow though since we've not gotten a thaw to take down the parking lot iceburgs.....
