It's official! "Punxsutawney Phil," braving a harsh winter storm this morning, has predicted that Spring will indeed arrive early.

Phil's prediction coincides with "Staten Island Chuck," who also is reassuring us of an early spring.

In the last several years, rodent prognosticators have sprung up like rats.  Wicked weather in the Northeast has prevented many similar seers like "Malverne Mel" from coming out at all.

No comment yet from "Lander Lil," but with clear skies across Central Wyoming, we might have to brace for more of these wonderful temperatures.  Brrrrrr!!
