Follow-up to the Groundhog’s Forecast

Did we all get the word on Tuesday?! Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow. Spring is on the way.

Yahoooo! That forecast alone is inspiration enough for the day. But I link you here to the feel-good music video of all time and some of the many versions it has inspired.
