Good new for the skier in the family but bad if you want spring to get here already, the groundhog says six more weeks of winter is on the way.

Now that the world famous Punxsutawney Phil has made it official that we will see six more weeks of winter my question is what winter?

This has been a very mild winter to say the least, no real snow has hit the valley and other than a few days of cold temperatures this has been like a long fall more than winter.

Even the annual 'Homeless for the Holidays' was pretty mild. We did a good job raising food for the Community Food bank but it didn't get very cold not like the past couple of years.

So for those who put stock into a rodent predicting the weather don't put that heavy jacket away just yet but you might want to pull the golf clubs out and get ready to enjoy a long golf season.
