It’s Groundhog day again!

February 2, 2010
  Here is an unpdate on our friends the predicting groundhogs in the east.  They have all seen their shadow and have concluded there will be 6 more weeks of winter.
 
  It turns out their endangered cousins, whom I refered to in my last entry, the Vancouver Island marmots, are still all hibernating.  According to the folks at The Vancouver Island Marmot Recovery Foundation the marmots didn’t see their shadows because they are all still underground until May.  Where they live in the high mountains there is still tons of snow, no food, and they are easily spotted by predators and Olympic athletes.  Like many Vancouverites they are planning to stay indoors and watch the Olympics on television.
