I wanted to make sure we get an early start to spring and I didn't want to leave it in the paws of Punxsutawney Phil. Enter Lincroft Lou.

I made made way to the front of the building knowing the rain was still coming down. That was good news for any of us who are looking forward to all the things spring and summer mean at the Jersey Shore.

I walked outside and taking the picture was a mere formality. No shadow. Not even close! So that means an early spring for the Jersey Shore!  And as far as I'm concerned, that's official enough!

By the way...Punxsutawney Phil did see his shadow, so he thinks there will be six more weeks of winter. So, who are you gonna believe? I thought so!
