If The Candle Sees Its Shadow

I’m not sure whether there are groundhogs in the UK, so I don’t know whether to tell winter’s duration by a subterranean rodent or a flickering light source. Either way, there are no shadows visible in Glasgow this morning, so I’m hoping this presages an imminent spring.
Oh, sorry, I meant to say — Happy Candlemas!

  1. No groundhogs in these parts.

  2. I think locally you are supposed to watch for badgers.

    And if Punxatawny (Sp?) DOESN’T see his shadow, that is the early spring predictor. And he did not!

    If Candlemas is bright and fair, there’ll be twae winters in yin year. Happily it could hardly have been darker and wetter.
