It's almost Groundhog Day! I love that movie. It's funny, deep and ridiculous. I think you either love it or you hate it. I love it. So we'll soon see if there will be six more weeks of winter.  (Seems like a good bet with this giant blizzard about to hit).   Speaking of winter, and large amounts of snow, check out our Ski Directory as well as this great list of Favorite Sledding Hills.  

Also - we are launching a cool new service that will focus on activities and family fun that you can do at home, as well as in other metro areas around the country, and we'd really appreciate your feedback on the name in this quick, 2-minute survey.   Many thanks in advance!
