A new year has started seized by a cold winters grasp. We count the days until spring arrives, yearning for those warmer days. How long will winter last? Ask the humble groundhog. Tradition tells us that if the groundhog sees his shadow on Groundhog Day, there will be six more weeks of winter. Otherwise, spring is just around the corner.
