Dunkirk Dave Does Not See Shadow Meaning Spring is Soon

On the shore of Lake Erie lies Dunkirk, New York, where a groundhog by the name of Dunkirk Dave resides.

Where Phil saw his shadow, implying a longer winter, Dave did not see his shadow, meaning an early spring. With all of the snow I have faced personally in Chicago as well as what friends, family and clients have endured from the left to right coasts of America, I think we can all go for a little less winter and some warmer, bearable temperatures.

So once again my hat goes off to Dunkirk Dave. Well, for now my hat will stay on and cover my head until it is warm enough to expose my bald pate to the elements. And as you may have guessed, Dave’s hometown is also my hometown, and thus the name of my little Internet consulting firm!
