gettin’ jingy.

the big guy checks out the situation.

“Groundhog found fog. New snows and blue toes.

Fine and dandy for Valentine candy.

Snow spittin’;

if you’re not mitten-smitten,

you’ll be frostbitten!

By jing-y feels spring-y.” 

― The Old Farmer’s Almanac

up all night.

a glimpse into the real story behind the legend.

 the groundhog

stays up all night

trying to calculate

exactly when spring will arrive

and is exhausted

when they wake him up

to bring him out

early in the morning

for his official prediction

each february 2nd

on groundhog day.

“i’m so tired…i was up all night trying to round off infinity.”
