Groundhog Day

We have been walking each day in the park which surrounds the State Hospital here in Evansvile. Just 7 kms a day, to keep our systems ticking over, For the past week, temperatures have been unseasonably high, beating records for the time of year. Yesterday, we were in the high 80s Fahrenheit, which is equivalent to 30 or so Celsius.

So it is not too surprising that we saw a groundhog in the park, emerging from its winter hibernation. But strange that the day we observed him studying the weather conditons was early one morning, just before the hot weather arrived - a day which started off at not much above freezing point.
