ORLANDO, FL – Emerging from his home after a week of post-Rolex hibernation, Ricky Taylor saw his shadow cast along his driveway. Symbolizing 6 more weeks of winter weather.  The Taylor shadow test is an annual tradition that captivates the world. Taylor emerged from his home, wearing the traditional Ricky Taylor Day garb, a pair of sweats and a vintage Elton Jon t-shirt. Spooked by the commotion, Taylor almost forgot to check for the shadow, but alas he did in fact see it. This came as bad news for a nation that just survived a polar vortex. “Well its a good thing the green egg is on the screened in porch, that way i’ll have something to do until Sebring,” Taylor added.
