Seven Mile 2/1/2006

By Rick Racela

If the day is cloudy he does not see his shadow, he takes it as a sign of spring, stays above ground, and there will be an early spring.
Early spring? Who are we kid-ding?
This January has been one of the mildest (and wet-test) on record.
I’m not com-plaining. I’ll take six more weeks of this “not-summer” weather.
