It's Groundhog Day!

Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow on this February 2, 2010 and there will be six more weeks of winter for the east coast, midwest and pacific northwest, but for sunny southern California, it makes no difference at all. In fact if Phil was here today, he would not have seen his shadow, just to confirm that our "winter"- fast and loose with the term winter here-is over.

In just a few weeks we will be reaching the usual scorching temperatures in the valleys and a cool 70 -80 in the beach cities and somewhere in the middle-somewhere in the middle. It is always sunny here and if it rains for a day or two the whole city nearly shuts down and everyone complains on their; Facebook, MySpace, Plaxo, Blogs, etc. etc. like they will never see the sun again.

The only thing about Groundhog Day that we enjoy here is Bill Murray being silly and repeating his day over and over and over. 'Tis Hollywood after all!
