A Crazy Taste of Spring

Yes, my friends, that is my shadow. During my beautiful morning run (4.89 miles/ 45 m 20s), I happened to look over at the snow and thought to myself, "Wow, I look like a real runner!"

Then I realized, I was looking at my shadow! Now for those of you who are lucky enough to live where the sun actually shines, you may not appreciate this rare sighting, but here in Syracuse, NY, where we have seen cold and snow and sub-freezing temps for weeks on end, it is like a breath of spring air!! I was so stunned by the sight of it, I couldn't help but laugh. I'm sure that the person in the car that passed me right then thought I was crazy!

It was also so warm I wore capri running pants! Crazy! Crazy! Crazy!

Unfortunately, that was at 8:15 a.m. At 4:30 p.m. this is what it looked like outside.

What does it mean if the groundhog sees his shadow? My name isn't Phil, but I'm guessing a bit more winter!
