The groundhog or the sailor?

In the absence of a proper BC groundhog, we had to make do yesterday ...

We saw our own shadows.

I think that means we are in for another six weeks of winter before spring arrives,although Hugh (Rock, Paper, Lizard), perhaps more pessimistic, or maybe more experienced, foretells a partly sunny afternoon standing in for spring.

Whatever the future brings, a shadow means sunshine, at least for a moment. And we did enjoy that.

Blue sky, low mist, and squiggly clouds over Boundary Bay

A herd of woolly lamb clouds, and one lone eagle

Tree lace and cottonball clouds

A hint of spring colour in a cottonwood tree.

At supper time, we came home to this view.

Red, fading to pink and mauve

"Red sky at night, sailor's delight." Sunshine again tomorrow?

So, who's right, the groundhog or the sailor?

A Skywatch post.
