The snow storm that arrived on the evening of Sunday, Feb. 3, dumped seven to eight inches of wet snow on the Fraser Community. The next morning the Clearwater Highway District plowed the roads and the skies started to clear up. By night time fog had rolled in and light snow flakes started to fall again. The next morning we woke up to 19 degrees with cloudy skies. The forecast is for colder temperatures to move in during the week, so the month of February may turn out to be the beginning of our real winter season.
A review of the 132nd Celebration of Ground Hog Day of February revealed that the famous ground hog Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow on Feb. 2. This year thousands of people gathered at Gobblers Nob outside of Punxnnsutawney, PA to hear the famous prediction.
The polar vortex that hit most of the northern U.S. sent the temperature down to a frigid 10 degrees on that day. The crowd was dressed appropriately for the occasion. We will have to wait and see if Phil’s forecast for an “Early Spring” develops. Old Man winter may have something to say about that.
