General Beauregard Lee's Spring Prediction

Forget about science. Every February General Beauregard Lee is taken from his antebellum mansion at the Yellow River Game Ranch located in Lilburn Georgia to predict an early spring or 6 more weeks of winter for the south. On February 2, in 30 degree weather, and an overcast sky, no shadow was seen. I don't care that his northern counter-part, Punxsutawney Phil, didn't see his.......I choose to believe Beau. It didn't help though that the low temperature that night was 16, today's predicted temp is in the 50's, with Saturday and Sunday in the 60's!!!. Go Beau.

The next time you are near Atlanta, stop in and visit him at the Yellow River Game Ranch. Tell him I said thanks.

  • Leslie, I choose to stick with Beau. We too are having unseasonably warm weather, but you know what comes with that. Severe thunderstorms expected tonight. I had my windows and screen door open on Saturday. I am just not made to be in cold weather. Keep me updated on the hives. I am bringing one home in the next month! Karen
