A salute to our local groundhog
Rocky took this snapshot of the local woodchuck (aka groundhog) in his backyard last summer.
Tomorrow is Groundhog Day. Since there’s no chance that any sensible critter will emerge through the snow and ice, Rocky offers a “shout-out” to the cute fellow alternatively known as a woodchuck, whistle-pig, land beaver, and Marmota monax. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Groundhog
[Disclosure: The groundhog is one of the few species that enters into a state of true hibernation. As Rocky’s daughter watched the too-loud Grammy Awards last night, Rocky went to bed and wished he could hibernate like a groundhog.]
