Flatiron Freddy, a stuffed marmot, is seen perched on a stump on Boulder’s Chautauqua Meadow on Tuesday.

Sure, old Freddy has been dead and stuffed for 20 years, but I would wager that the marmot is just as good as the more famous groundhog at predicting the arrival of spring. You can read more about Freddy here.  And like Punxsutawney Phil, Freddy did not 'see' his shadow, so Boulder will have an early spring!  Just got 15 inches of snow and it's mighty cold, but Freddy sez spring is on its way!!
