Punxsutawney Phil, Pennsylvania’s famous prognosticator, emerged from his cozy bed Monday morning and saw his shadow. So,winter will last six more weeks. This traditional groundhog ceremony in America, with a cheering crowd as witness, began in Pennsylvania around 1886. This year more than 13,000 came to see what Punxsutawney Phil would have to say about the weather. Theater lover that I am, last week I went to see “ The Phantom of the Opera ” at the beautifully restored Pantages Theatre in Hollywood.

I'm sure people on the East Coast must have been dismayed Sunday when Punxsutawney Phil (the most famous groundhog of all) was routed out of his sleeping burrow on Sunday and was so irritated at seeing his shadow that he just wanted to go back to sleep. You know what that means, right? There will be six more weeks of winter. Those people in Gobblers Knob, Pa., where Phil lives, have seen so much snow that they can't stand the thought of any more of that white stuff. However, if we are to have six more weeks of winter I hope that we will have lots of rain so that we can get out of the drought zone and lessen the possibility of parts of our state running out of water.
