Prognosticating Punxsutawney

Snow days here in the south aren't anything like snow days up north. We got four, maybe five inches throughout Friday and Saturday. Up north, the plows would have come through and that would have been that.

Do you know what they use for snow plows down here? The sun. If the sun doesn't melt the snow away in short order, they have a back up plan--your car. If you're brave enough to go out on the roads, you're leaving tracks and if enough people do this, eventually, the roads will be clear(ish). Not many people do this though, and so four days after the storm school is still out and all extra curricular activities are canceled. Crazy.

I guess this gives us time to get some schoolwork done so we can take a break when the weather is nice again. I was hoping that would be sooner rather than later, but Furry Phil says we can expect more of the same for while yet.
