I think the groundhog was wrong!

For the past 2 days I've heard a couple of birds chirping. The temps have only been hitting the mid 20's at best and the next couple of days will be very cold. When I start to hear the birds chirping I can't help but think that spring is on the way sooner than expected. I hope warmer weather is on the way soon. We are starting our camping season Easter weekend at Locust Lake State Park in PA. There looks to be about 8" of ice covering the lake right now. It's hard to get the kayaks out on the lake with those conditions. That weekend is also the opening weekend for trout and I don't have ice fishing equipment. Last year was cold over the Easter weekend but not to the point of having ice on the lake.

Can't wait to start camping. We already have around 20 days booked. Come on warmer weather.

Hey, we hold all Pennsylvanians responsible for "Phil". I think his little brain was frozen and got confused on the six more weeks thing.

How can you trust anything that is afraid of their own shadow?

Amen...we have spring/camping fever bad!

It got warm here a few weeks ago so we had plans to take Rocky down to New Mexico (warmer nights than Colorado) but then a few days before a cold front blew down and lows were to be in the 20's down there....rats!!

So we're doing what we always do in Feb/March....tinkering and making upgrades. (My new Rock Tamers for the Tundra came in yesterday so I'll be installing them this week.) I'm, also, putting together my emergency road kit.

I need to get my propane tanks and take them down to get refilled before the season starts, too.

Wiarton Willie called for an early spring for Canada. Maybe the cold air will leave and go back north.

20 here at 2pm in the afternoon, supposed to go to a low of -4 tonight.
Snow on the ground and more lousy weather on the way this weekend.

Was hoping to camp last weekend but it was too cold.
