Phil Can Be a Shadowy Punxster

And the winner is…

Ugh.

You saw and heard it. Famous groundhog Punxsutawney Phil has declared six more weeks of winter. Although, consider the fact that Phil’s forecast has not been 100% historically. Therefore, we’ll find out if he’s punking us in the coming month and change.

If so, that’s what Phil would call an ice burn.

Merry Christmas!

Frank Sinatra would have turned 100 years young this year.

Sinatra was one of the greatest singers the world has ever known. A true one-of-a-kind. Lucky for us, he shared his talent for a Christmas classic.

Even luckier is watching a video edited by Kate Beske, who put Sinatra’s rendition of the Judy Garland song, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” to a beautiful slideshow.

Hopefully, you had yourself a merry little Christmas!

Rain, it’s Your Turn

Yesterday, at some point during the afternoon in Columbus, Ohio, there were snow flurries blowing around like its hair was on fire (talk about fire and ice). Snow can be fun and an incredible sight, but not this kind of snow and cold. I had the shades drawn in my office, so it was a genuine shock looking out my co-workers window as I was preparing to leave. “What in the world? I thought Winter was ‘technically’ over?”

Driving home, there was no visibility beyond 15 feet in front of my car. Didn’t Spring kick-off on March 20th? Of course, it is Ohio, so…

Still, the calendar is only days away from flipping into April. This means that instead of relentless snow we shall (surely) now endure relentless rain. However, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s certainly better than any Polar Vortex!

Occasional rain reminds me of a couple things, which includes singing and splashing around in puddles like a child, as well as…

(Skip to 1:37 for the rain)

Even though it’s usually better to wish for no rain as opposed to rain, it has the potential to bring with it a fun, magical purpose.

It’s like traveling back in time to our childhood when we just went with things as they came about, which can certainly be a good thing every once in a while in between the daily grind.

If nothing else, at least there’s no frost with rain!

Happy Monday!

Snow is falling. Cheer is in the air. The spirit of Christmas and the holiday season is being captured and celebrated in cities and towns across the country and the world.

This time of year calls for impromptu ski/snowboarding trips or venturing off to a cabin nestled within the majesty of nature.

However, today is Monday. Sorry, it’s the truth. The likelihood of escaping the grind of the work week is slim to none. But wait, today is Monday

Monday + 8:00 p.m. + CBS = “How I Met Your Mother” = A high probability of something happening that is Legen-wait for it…

dary!

Happy Monday and Make This Week Legendary!
