Here in Texas, we have our Longhorn (Groundhog) Day. This longhorn pictured is Big Red and his horn spread, tip to tip is 9' 5/8". His horns are USA record holder length.

But, I digress.... Locally in Texas, we don't celebrate Groundhog Day....but do Longhorn Day instead. The Longhorn steer that is used is Alamo, and I read his "following the curve of the horn length is 10'. long. Wow! That has to be LOTS of weight to carry around.

I haven't heard the results of Alamo seeing his shadow....but it's been cloudy here today...and if the celebration were held at our home , we'd be slated for an early spring.

I also heard on the news the Groundhog prediction only correct 37% of the time. But, those top hat guys in Pennsylvania have FUN with their celebration, don't they? Grin.

Happy Groundhog day!! (and RVing too)

We don't have groundhogs in Texas...so some thought was given to what animal to use for testing on this day.

This afternoon's news stated that Alamo the Longhorn, didn't see his shadow, so he is predicting an early spring! I am betting everyone is READY!!

Alamo was at one of the Weather Museums....and they had some school kids touring, and those city kids got a big kick out of that ole, tame long horned steer. They got their photo taken with him...got to stand right up next to him, hug his neck and feel his big horns. Cute things were just full of giggling and fun!

We were almost out of firewood in the garage, so went out and brought the little trailer full in for storage. We are going to have more wood stove weather along with a cold rain....so the wood stove will feel wonderful.

Enjoy the afternoon and Happy RVing!
