Punxatawny Phil has seen his shadow – which means we will have 6 more weeks of winter. But how bad is that this year? I’ve really enjoyed the mild temps and lack of snow – I wish winter was this mild in Pittsburgh every year!
However, these mild temps will surely lead to a rather buggy spring. I’m not sure where they hide or where they live, but when the thermometer hit 60 on Monday, we found 6 stinkbugs in my daughter’s room. Just makes me wonder what this spring will bring – no doubt we will be hearing news of mosquitos and West NileVirus. And I hear the bat population has taken a hit. They eat thousands of bugs each night. So, just a warning now, mosquito netting and Off spray will be necessity items come May.
But that’s just MY prediction!
