rooting for the groundhog (early spring)

it is snowing ... maybe 2 inches outside ... been snowing for about 3 hours now ... [weather website] says: snow today, getting better monday ... tuesday sunny, and all week 40s/10s ... then beginning saturday, following week is 50s/20s ...

i heard that if [the groundhog] did NOT forecast an early spring, that spring would come in the middle of march ... but the groundhog DID forecast an early spring ... so that must mean before the middle of march ...

the forecast was made by [the groundhog] on feb 2 ... and the middle of march is 6 weeks from there ... so early spring means 3-6 weeks from feb 2, to me ... so that means, our target zone for an early spring starts TODAY ... and lasts for three weeks ... based on [the groundhog] ...

the reason this is important is because i am just about out of firewood ... i count 10 pieces ... and i do not want to purchase or cut more wood ... i will use it very sparingly ... and maybe i can scrounge a few pieces from [a friend] ...

so we are rooting for [the groundhog] to be right ... and according to the extended forecast on [weather website], the mid-50's are only one week out ...

come on early spring! ... i think i can make it ... (famous last words).
