The weather can't make up it's mind, it's warm then it's cold, it's slush then it's snow and then that pesky Punxsutawney Phil came out of his burrow earlier this week and had the audacity to tell us that there will be 6 more weeks of winter.....when did we start listening to groundhogs? The temps are to be above freezing this weekend - perfect weather to get out there and have some fun.
