Not a groundhog

The groundhog didn't see his shadow in St Paul today. It was foggy and dreary the whole day. I also heard via the radio that the groundhog's history of weather predictions for the rest of the winter has an accuracy of 39%.  Abysmal.

I missed the blog theme day yesterday and didn't take a photo today - too dreary. But I have in my archives a photo of a Como Zoo tiger from December of 2007, a year when there was an actual winter. With snow and everything.

I played two sets of tennis at Wooddale tonight. Both of the hardcore girls were absent, but the subs were competitive and tennis went well. Then I went to Yang's for Singapore rice noodles and a chat with the Yangs while I was waiting for the take-out order to be filled.   We discussed my recent trip to Norway and the difference of climate between here and there.  Interestingly, they both knew that Norway has a border with Russia in the far north, well north of the Arctic Circle.  Up there by Murmansk.

Super Bowl Sunday is three days off.  Tom Brady or Eli Manning?

You win -- best animal photo of the month award. Cool.

we haven't heard much about the hard core girls lately.

I don't know much about the super bowl, except that it's in Indy this year. Presumably not at the race track.
