I don’t think I saw a single marmot last year. I can only imagine that they fled the country. I’m not sure what kind of healthcare is available to marmots but I’m sure it’s pretty good. I’ve never actually seen a sick marmot. I suspect they magically regenerate. Or perhaps the colony has a marmot shaman that instantly heals ailing marmots. It’s possible they headed for the border because of the healthcare disaster going on here.
It’s getting to be the season that marmots should start appearing. If I don’t start seeing marmots soon then I’ll assume that they really did flee the country. If it’s true then I think we had better wake up and take notice of their warning.
I’m starting to think that all of the marmots might have fled to Iceland – that would explain a lot.
