The beaver wins!
If Portland were to hold its own annual Small Rodent Predicts the Weather Day, which animal would make the best master of ceremonies? In a poll conducted last week, the readers of Welcome to Blog were given the task of determining a suitable candidate. Their decision?
Narrowly beating out front runner Courtney Taylor-Taylor by a single vote, they've decided a beaver should be the one that pops out of a hole every February.
Huh...huh...I said "beaver," "hole" and "pop."
So to all the beavers out there, congratulations. You've been given the honor of acting as the MC in a hypothetical civic event that will never, ever take place. That's not to say you haven't won anything. I've cobbled together a Photoshoped image of one of your furry friends hosting this conceptual ceremony in Pioneer Courthouse Square. It's Welcome to Blog's photo of the month for February.
The expressions of all involved is meant to suggest that this rodent has indeed seen his shadow and the region is in for another six weeks of rain....followed by another six weeks of rain and another six weeks after that. I suppose it could be open to interpretation though.
