    Shadow, no shadow


    Murdock, Minnesota

    I shot a few photos just after 9 a.m. in Murdock, Minn. when I could not find my shadow. It was -9F (-12.7C) outside, with a fresh layer of snow, and rabbit tracks on the front steps at home. So, at 9 a.m., no shadow means an early spring, according to the Grounddog Day tradition. Around 11 a.m, shadows appeared when I walked my dog Andrew, age 14.5 years, a West Highland White Terrier.


    I am tired of the cold, so I am going with the no shadow report for Groundhog Day, indicating an early spring. It was -17F yesterday, and I am ready for the warm weather to arrive as soon as possible.
