Let me out of here - I Can't take anymore !!!

I CAN'T STAND IT ANYMORE!! Stuck in the house day after day after day!! Cold, snow, cold, snow, and then more cold and snow. We must have a two foot accumulation now. Yuck!

It seems that all I can think about is getting out and of eating. By a little after 9:00 a.m. I had already checked the fridge and pantry twice to see what I can fix for dinner tonight. Fortunately at this point I think that I have consumed all of the snacks and candy in the house. Still I am tempted to bake something that is sweet and full of calories. NO! NO! NO!... HELP!!
I have cabin fever and I MUST get out of the house. At least this weekend we will be heading to Toledo for Maxwell, one of our Grandsons, second birthday.

I very much want to do some letterboxing so I just signed up for the "Groundhog Day With Buckeye Chuck-Again" event. Buckeye Chuck is the Ohio answer to Punxsutawney Phil. I did read that they offer hot chocolate and SPAM sandwiches to the waiting crowd. I have not eaten Spam for a long time now, but may try it. Also a local restaurant is noted for fried Bologna sandwiches. See, here I am thinking about food again!!!

It may well prove to be too cold and snow packed to do any real letterboxing by slushing along on foot or riding on my little scooter, but I will try to at least work the drive by's. There will also be exchanges at a gathering following Buckeye Chuck's appearance.

I have been toying with the idea of planting a local "Berea Bart" box celebrating groundhog day which would only be available in late January and early February of each year. If I go ahead with it, and finish it in time, I may introduce it at this event prior to placing it in it's permanent seasonal home.

I have not yet received any correct responses to the challange question!
My first posting
"Chuck this Weather" contained the following opening lines.
Q: Who ya'gona call!

A: Snow buster Chucky!
Of course you did recognized that as a play on the "Ghostbusters" theme, Right!

So what is the connection between Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day?
If you think that you know, send me email with your answer!
