As far back as I can remember, we always looked to Punxsutawney Phil on February 1st, to predict winter’s length. In Texas, we do it differently; wile we don’t rely on a rodent to predict winter’s end, we do rely on our own Bee Cave Bob. “Bob”, is an armadillo; yes, that’s right, he’s an armadillo who predicts Texas weather.
Every Groundhog Day a crowd will gather at West Pole in Bee Cave and watch as Bee Cave Bob exits his burrow at the end of a concrete slab painted like a highway. Just so happens he predicted an “early spring” in Texas! To watch a video of this momentous occasion, go to www.statesman.com, click on latest videos.
Now who wouldn’t rather believe the weather predication of a cute and cuddly animal such as our Bee Cave Bob, …or….
Believe a groundhog who will “bite” your ear!
Either way, it appears the prediction for Texas is to have an early spring…YEA! For me, I’m going to mark my calendar and watch the skies, which today are cloudy and COLD!
