Today, I must break from our weekly schedule to bring you the news from our neck of the woods in the Colorado Rockies.
Our young dog has taken on the role as the local groundhog.
He saw his shadow this morning. That means that we can expect 16 more weeks of winter.
Thanks to Hachi for playing this vital role in our weather forecasting.
BLK Dog Sunday?? Extra Treats Please From Uncle TReplyDelete
I much prefer GroundHachi over Phil... so handsome and that shadow is hilarious... love the photo and the pup. sorry about the 16 weeks ahead.ReplyDelete
Hachi did a great job as a substitute groundhog but we think 16 weeks is a bit much. Of course we also can still see snow into May but we don't get storms with inches of snow but just a dusting.ReplyDelete
Bravo Hachi, you did wonderful...but please keep the winter at your place!ReplyDelete
You did a great job, Hachi! Our Punxsutawney Phil the groundhog predicted an early spring for us. We shall see.ReplyDelete
Please Hachi, can you arrange for us a proper snowy winter? Here in Scotland all we have is interminable dampness...ReplyDelete
I second Bertie's request!!! Hehehe... lovely interim broadcast. Love to all up on the mountains. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
Thanks Hachi well done on your handsome self and shadow. Hugs to the sibs and the staffReplyDelete
He does look as if he's wondering just who that 'other dog' is.ReplyDelete
Scorching HOT everywhere down here, up to 34Celsius in some places, one city had a record high since records began. Love the shadow, roll on summer for all you northerners.ReplyDelete
We think Hachi Day would be a lot more fun.ReplyDelete
LOL - too funny! My Ft. Collins brother reports 70 degrees today, predicted to drop to 20 degree high tomorrow. Hang tight!ReplyDelete
By happenstance, in addition to GroundHachi Day, it's Superb Owl Sunday, with a superb set of photos in the Atlantic Magazine: https://www.theatlantic.com/photo/2020/02/photos-superb-owl-sunday-iv/605854/

Okay we got a question.ReplyDelete
16 more weeks of winter???
Please say that's not true.

16 more weeks, say it isn't so Hachi!ReplyDelete
Great job, Hachi! Though we have to maybe hope you are only as reliable as the weather people, and maybe it will be a little less than that? LOLReplyDelete

But with Phil, we only get SIX more weeks of winter! Actually, we haven't really had much of any winter this year. The insects are going to be really, really bad.ReplyDelete
I think your Hachi boy is probably more accurate than the PA rodent.ReplyDelete
