Clear skies and beautiful views of Mount St. Helens greet us this morning. Both VolcanoCams are working with no problems.

The question to ponder; will Mount St. Helens see its shadow tomorrow morning on Groundhog Day?

According to folklore, if it is cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its burrow on February 2, then spring will come early; if it is sunny, the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its burrow, and the winter weather will continue for six more weeks.
