Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania is 1,240 miles from Valentine, Nebraska.  The students of 2C think that is just too far away for a little groundhog to predict our weather!  So, we brought in our own expert – Valentine Valerie.  Valerie has been predicting the arrival of spring for over a decade in Mrs. Hanzlicek’s classes.  Valerie went outside at 8:30 am on Friday, January 31, 2014. (It is difficult to get a bunch of 2nd graders and their teacher out at daybreak on a Sunday morning). Surrounded by her friends from 2C, Valerie saw nothing but concrete on the ground.  Hurrah!  Spring is just around the corner!  This prognosticating pig has fortunately been fairly accurate in her career, so either way, enjoy the rest of winter in Valentine!
