This is what we found.
The groundhogs were out, eating to prepare for hibernation. Notice his shiny black hands, like he is wearing leather gloves. I do hope his burrow doesn't get flooded.
I am the daughter of Earth and Water,
And the nursling of the Sky;
I pass through the pores of the ocean and shores;
I change, but I cannot die....
~Percy Bysshe Shelley, "The Cloud"
