Groundhog day


Cruz beat Trump and Sanders is neck and neck with Clinton.  Now that the Iowa primary is over the people of the USA can turn their attention to more important matters.  Will we have another 6 weeks of winter?  Today we find out from the furry meteorologist – the groundhog.

I’m sitting on a dark train waiting to see what the dawn brings.  We had a heck of a gale last night and it feels like cold front weather this morning.  In Ireland that generally means a bright and sunny dawn, which is bad news for those who want an early spring.

If Candlemas be fair and bright,
Winter has another flight.
If Candlemas brings clouds and rain,
Winter will not come again
