Sunrise On the Horizon - Skywatch Friday

The day dawned bright and clear.  Normally that's a good thing but on Groundhog day, not so much so.  February 2 the skies were clear and the sun bright and cheery and Balzac Billy saw his shadow.  Six more weeks of winter is the forecast for Alberta.  Not that that's unusual, it's more like the norm here.  I don't put a lot of faith in this ritual but it is just for fun, isn't it?

What were your skies like this week?  Did the groundhog see his shadow where you live?

  The Sky Watch participants share their photos for you to enjoy.  Why not stop by?

Poor old Balzac Billy, such a lot of responsibility on such little shoulders.

With a continental climate it is hardly possible except for global warming, to have another 6 weeks of winter.

Lovely sunrise.

I guess our Wisconsin Groundhog, I think his name is Jimmy--didn't see his shadow, so we are having an early spring. (Just as soon as the 4' of snow melts.) I love your picture, so very beautiful!

So nice to see the sun in the sky. It looks like we'll have to get our shovels ready again. I enjoyed your Christmas Carol post. You were lucky to win that great evening! Sunshine Always!

What a beautiful sunrise! As for the groundhog, I don't put a lot of faith in him either, but as you said, it's a fun tradition :o)
