Groundhog Day 2016: Lander Lil doesn't cast a shadow meaning...

Spring to come early! (Lander, Wyo.) – Lander’s famous weather forecasting prairie dog, Lander Lil, did not cast a shadow this morning in the park near the intersection of U.S. 287 and Wyoming 789, predicting that Spring will come to County 10 early. [image: Lander Lil 2016 lj.png] Since 1984 Lander’s weather forecasting prairie dog has been the local symbol for Groundhog Day. Established by Mary Ann Atwood, Lander Lil was formerly a live female prairie dog, but for many years now a bronze statue of the famous rodent has taken her place. Located just west of the Lander Post Office, the site of Lander Lil’s bronze is a former prairie dog colony. #county10 #news #mcdonalds
