Yes, it is that time of the year again where the tradition of relying on a member of the rodent family predicts the weather for us. It truly is an American tradition made famous of course by Bill Murray in his classic film Groundhog’s Day. Personally, I hope the little guy sees his shadow and we get 6 more weeks of winter because it’s been one mild winter so far and I will never turn down the more water here in the valley. In case you were wondering, no this is not a Groundhog but is in the same family and same group, the Hoary Marmot.
Happy 4th of July!!! Today we celebrate what brave men did many years ago to forge this great nation that we live in today. While you’re out celebrating, eating bbq, boating on the lake or any other fun summer activities, stop and give thanks for a moment.
