Ground Hog Day

Somewhere people are looking for spring today. 
In GriggsDakota, we are not.

When I was in grade school, I asked Grandpa Sonny, who was then just Daddy, why the teacher was talking about Ground Hog Day.
He told me that if a Ground Hog came out of his hole and saw his shadow, there would be no sign of Spring for at least six weeks.
If the Ground Hog did not see his shadow, we might have a sign of Spring in just six weeks. But that all the smart Ground Hogs were just going to sleep right through it.
Such is the philosophy in GriggsDakota.
