It’s official: Lander Lil does not see her shadow; forecast is for early spring

(Lander) — An early spring is the word from Lander this morning as cloudy skies at sunrise prevented Lander Lil from seeing her shadow. Since 1984 Lander’s weather forecasting prairie dog, Lander Lil, has been the local star of Groundhog Day. Established by Mary Ann Atwood, Lander Lil was formerly a live female prairie dog, but for many years now a bronze statue of the famous rodent has taken her place. Located just west of the Lander Post Office, the site of Lander Lil is a former prairie dog colony.
