The groundhog saw his shadow, peering out from his nap atop Gobbler’s Knob and honoring a German tradition of weather-watching and folklore.
Here in the Pacific Northwest, our Winter has not been altogether unpleasant, but we know it is safe to assume that the majority of the world is ready for Spring.
Phil’s message brings a shiver and resignation to think of another month and a half of most people’s least favorite season.
Happy Groundhog Day!

Planning a news conference today, July 8, 2009, Meriwether Lewis’ descendants (save one), numbering nearly 200, have also set up awebsite to try and further the cause for exhumation of the famous explorer’s remains. The purpose being merely to determine more accurately the manner of his death.
Governor Lewis is buried on the Natchez Trace Parkway which is federally-protected land.
Arguments of murder vs. suicide have been raging in certain circles since the first exhumation of his remains.
On October 11, 1809, Lewis was found deceased at age 35, in a small inn named Grinder’s Stand in the Tennessee mountains.
While the park service would rather keep the body in its sanctified resting place, the family would like scientific evidence to lay to rest the arguments at long last, and then to give the intrepid Lewis a proper Christian burial.
