This is not a celebration of Ground Hog’s Day, but a centuries old pagan holiday and custom of food and fuel reckoning. Years ago folks prescribed that for a family to survive until spring, they needed to have at least 1⁄2 of the food and fuel necessary to sustain the farm still remaining. Here on Rabbit Hill, the news is good. The roots are plentiful and look beautiful in the cellar and the hay barn is over 3⁄4 full. As the road is impassable until the snow melts, the propane needs to be monitored, but the wood supply is sufficient. There is plenty of meat in the freezer, and always clams to dig!
