Cigars, Winter and that Punxsutawney Phil Groundhog
We know recently this weather has been getting many of us on the Eastern Seaboard of the United States fairly upset. Throughout January and so far in February we have been greeted with two Polar Vortexes, tons of snow and overall terrible weather. Then to make us even more upset this guy shows up.
According to the tradition, if Phil sees his shadow and returns to his hole, he has predicted six more weeks of winter-like weather. If Phil does not see his shadow, he has predicted a quick end to winter.
Phil came out of the ground saw his shadow and ran back into that hole faster than you can blink. In other words he is predicting terrible weather and the very next day the whole region was hit with anywhere from 3-12 inches of snow upsetting many people, including individuals that love cigars.
Many cigar aficionados have been wondering when we are going to get a break from this weather as typically a large percentage of cigars are smoked outside. Preferably when there is no polar vortex outside.
Some go to a cigar friendly bar, others brave the cold and yet others hang out in the garage when this happens but what is your solution?
