We don't have groundhogs here. If we did, I doubt I would be inclined to trust their forecasting skills. Then again, perhaps I should reconsider my rodent prejudices as it seems unlikely they could do a lot worse than meteorologists.

I'm in the group distrustful of rodents as well, but I'm sure that they would do as good a job, if not better than what we have.

Today's forecast...at 6am, mind you...was that we'd possibly have light snow that would only accumulate in grassy areas. Here's what I saw out my front door by 11 am...

I do not count on rodents to do anything but die in a wall or truck dash and not be accessible to remove the odor!!! I have fought mice, rats, rabbits,and squirrels in my lifetime, and one thing they do for certain: stink when they die!!! I'll stink when I die!! When I was pregnant with my 3rd child, we had a rat die in the attic. I was unable to go up and get it out, and the opening was too small for my husband. So his cousin finally went up and removed it.

Over on Facebook, I had fun with word play - said I was looking for a photo of a ground hog. First put up a capybara, the next day a baby wombat, and finally announced I had found the right photo of ground hog - and it was a colorful display of newly stuffed sausage, not yet tied off into links. GROUND HOG!!!! Not everyone "got it" right away - but that was OK!!! I had fun!!!!

Hi, wannadance, I thought it was hilarious!!! Having been involved in SOME sausage making, I can appreciate the good humor. Now, everyone, how about Texas possums? and our possums? They are FORD frequently around here. The texas variety (with their hard shells) are making a pretty good comeback in this area, and I looked them up in the World Book encyclopedia and found out that some people EAT the things. For those who don't know, I'm talking about armadillos. There is no law against shooting them. . For those who do not know, armadillos can carry leprosy. All wild animals carry the threat of rabies. There is no law against coyotes, either. And especially if they get into your pasture and kill baby calves. That is here in Alabama. And all these things STINK when they die!! People used to burn the carcasses, but the epa has decreed that THOU SHALT NOT!!! I have never eaten possum and don't want to, but dear hubby has, said it gave him indigestion. L8R Luciee

There is the joke about whether there was going to be a cold winter or not. The first forecast said it was going to be colder than normal. So the Indians gathered extra firewood. Next the forecaster said that it was going to be even worse. Now the Indians gathered even more wood. Now the forecast said it was going to be even worse yet.

Someone asked the forecaster how they knew it was going to be terrible. The reply. "Well, the Indians are gathering firewood like crazy!"

flaflwgrl, that is so funny! I would not relocate them, they are like snakes and just follow the scent. I do not have much sympathy for varmints that ruin gardens and yards. We had a snake get in our garage and a few days later another one was trying to get in, too. We had killed the 1st one, and this one had to be killed also so no one would come up on it in our yard and be scared, like I was. Also, our electric company magazine came today, and there was an article about feral hogs. Talk about coincidence. The article said they could be hunted with or without dogs. It is a problem, but thankfully, we do not have them here. Luciee

I understand that Al. has declared it's open season on the wild boar year round as they have become such a problem.
Truthfully, I really do my level best these days not to kill anything. Maybe it's age, maybe it's mellowing... whatever...but if life is threatend --- that's a different story. And then there's the 'dillas who can make you so NUTS ravaging your yard night after night after night. We stayed up keeping watch for 6 nights once. We averaged 50 to 60 holes in our VERY SMALL yard with each visit it made not to mention it's digging underneath the slab.

About ten thousand followers gather yearly to celebrate Phil's birthday and annual weather prediction. We believe his word is gospel. Anyone who disagrees is living on thin ice. This year just a few minutes before daylight Phil appeared. The strangest thing we ever witnessed was an appearance of sunlight believed to be bouncing off the belly of a well cleaned 747. That ray of light was awesome. Phil turned his head dead in line with that ray of light, shivered, shook his head and squirmed quickly back into his hole. He popped his head out one more time and uttered the phrase, "six more week of winter". So far every word he spoke is being recorded as testament to the gospel of Phil.

Anyone who does not like and trust Phil will be visited this summer by his relatives and this to is gospel. So those who doubted his wisdom may herein apologize and Phil will scratch your name off his hit list.

Phil being all male has had his eyes on a pretty little marmot critter in the Western mountains somewhere. He could likely sweet talk she and her friends to cover his needs where his kinfolk have never lived. Phil has been witnessed texting in his burrow. The mainline chatter has all been West and South. Research on the texts indicate Phil has some kind of a smaller friend in Texas. The friends pop up and down and live in colonies. We know they are smaller but in numbers possibly could make up for size difference. Don't ever doubt the wisdom and ability of a ground hog of Phil's stature.

I can contact them here in AL by typing in ACES. That stands for al state county extension. Of course we have the Auburn Ag school here, but I thought all states had access to help through the gov't agencies. How big are the holes? Groundhogs make bigger holes than the 2 I mentioned.

Roseycats...talk to your state farm agent. You need to know what you have and then devise a program to get rid of them if they continue to be a problem. If you know a hunter or a trapper that may be a way to identifiy them as well as someone who would help you get rid of them. Most farm supply stores have smoke bombs and traps.

Our cats are inside cats, too. One fall they (ASCPA) warned about letting black cats out, because people would steal them for perverse Oct. 31st activities. So my black cat has been in since. He was an outside cat when I got him, he was a stray. He wants to go out again so badly that he can't stand it. He catches any mice that get in. The other is the manx, he was also a stray. We also have a dog. I have to keep my plant room closed off so he won't get in and tear up my plants. All my animals are fixed. I did not know there was a pet forum. I will have to check it out.

Groundhog or woodchuck makes no difference. The front end will eat nearly anything while the rear end is a living earth moving affair. I can't think of anything good they provide except in rare instances meat for a very few tables.

Luciee, I'm glad to see you could post your picture's. I'm sorry about you loising your cute little black dog, and your sweet little white cat. I have a white cat that looks a lot like your's. I like the picture's of your cats in the dryer, my little black and white cat always tries or does jump in our Fridge all the time, and he also like to sleep in the sink. They can be so silly, but sweet.

Luciee, I'm up there in age and I get blurred vision when I'm tired.
Like your picture's, and would like to see your dog also.

That sweet "little" white cat was a big orange/simese mix. He weighed about 20 lbs. We had someone at the house once when the black longhair walked in and they said "what a big cat!" About then big orange walked in and I said "this is the big one, that one is mostly hair, on the black one." The "little" black dog weighed 28 lbs. She was full blooded cocker. This cat is my daughter's. I must have hit a wrong button. I'll try again. Luciee

Like I said, I just keep trying until I get it right. I am trying for our little lap dog. This is the stray that came here. When I finally got it to the vet, it had feline leukemia and feline aids. It was put to sleep. Luciee

If this one goes, I am quitting for the day, Rosycats. I have flower pictures that I want to put on plant forum, since you taught me how to do this. I have one somewhere with his hair cut off. I will have to try another time. Luciee

Rosycats, your flame siamese is pretty. It does not seem to have as much orange as Frankie had. Luciee

Thank you, Whizz. I have one of the black longhair looking out the window, watching a squirrel eat the strings off my mop. I had to put the mop where the squirrel would not get to it. l8r, luciee PS, thanks to Rosycats, I am able to put this pic. up.

It would have taken a blow-torch to get the groundhog out this year, 4 inches of solid ice covered with a foot of snow. Now that it is thawing, we are covered in mud. I'd expect spring flooding more than early spring weather.

Cathy, we've had our share of mud since it snowed. I can't think of another time that snow was on the ground so long. Today is sunny and more warm. I had to go to town this a.m., and now I don't have the energy to go out. Maybe tomorrow. Luciee This is a solanum someone sent me.
