Shadow? What shadow? We’re still buried under the snow!

So Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow this morning which means six more weeks of winter. His cousins here in the Rocky Mountains probably are less than thrilled to hear that given the copious amounts of snow that have fallen this season on their homes.

This Yellow-bellied Marmot was high on top Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park back in July. Needless to say conditions then were far different than what they are enduring up there on Groundhog Day today. Our marmots are indeed cousins to the groundhogs back in Pennsylvania although the environment in which they live is quite different.
