Gray Whales, Punxsutawney Phil and Phenology

Not many animals get their own national holiday. Perhaps that’s why Groundhog Day is one of my favorite holidays. If you missed the headline, Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow when he poked his head out of his burrow, so we can expect an early spring. With all due respect to Phil, there may be better ways to predict weather trends.
