Happly Missileers Day!

Did off-going crews see their shadows today? Be of good cheer, there are only 3 more months of winter for the Northern Tier.

(It was sunny out here on the Oregon Coast.)

Not sure if there were any ground hogs at Minot but we did have flickertails (Richardson's ground squirrel) in the field behind my BOQ. I don't think they were willing to come out of their burrows on February 2 though

Haha, I didn't even think to check for my shadow when I came topside this morning.

It was sunny out so I'm sure I would have seen my shadow. Not sure if I would have retreated back to the capsule though... :lol:

Can't do this tomorrow, so today! Shadows or no shadows tomorrow, hope those on alert today have a quiet one! And tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow. (Our forecast is for partly cloudy tomorrow.)

Capt. Bill, when I was at Minot ('84-86) those were referred to as Dak Rats.

Once again, it's OUR DAY! Still dark, but saw stars, so am expecting to see shadows later. (Just looked out--foggy!)

As I was facing into the sun, I failed to see my shadow.

Another Missileers Day is dawning (no sun here yet). May the off-going crews see their shadows, or not, as they prefer.
