Full Snow Moon!


Reporting from the
RRC....
(Remington Research Center) 
Remington, your full moon reporter.

Keep your eyes to the sky tonight for the
Full Snow Moon.

From my extensive research this is what I 
have found....

The Full Snow Moon....
Since the heaviest snow usually falls 
during this month, native tribes of the 
north and east most often
called February's full moon the 
Full Snow Moon.  Some tribes also 
referred to this Moon as the 
Full Hunger Moon, 
since harsh weather conditions 
in their areas made hunting very difficult.

I am hoping it is clear tonight
so my photographer, Mr. Mike, 
can get some good shots!

If you happen to be outside about 8:37 tonight
you may be able to hear me howling....
it will be just for you....

Later -- Remington --
do you think this will bring me some snow?
-- out!

We are pleased to hear you are an astronomer Remington, we enjoy all your moon reports.
Hope the snow moon brings you the snow you love, we will keep our paws crossed.
By the way, you should be pleased nobody likes to play the mandolin in your house - we hate it, it is too high pitched and make Mum play in her bedroom where she cant torture our poor ears!

Morning handsome...thank you for the info and maybe...just maybe...we'll be able to see the moon and stars tonight. Today is our first day of sun since last Friday. I guess you know I'll be sunpuddle surfing.
Hugs from your BFFF,
Madi

Woof! Woof! We will check it out too. Mom can never get a good photo. Maybe next time on your Moon Report, you can give advise on Moon Photography. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Maybe last night's snowfall will make it east and north to you. I'd have to watch a weather map to see which way the storm was headed, though. I'll breathe out and you breathe in and perhaps that would move it along.♥♫

We'll be out there listening for you! The moon was bright last night, too, we saw the raccoons on our deck!

If I hear you at 8:37 ~ I will howl back at you. We probably won't have a good view as rain is moving in.

My question for RRC is, will it be called Full Sand Moon here in Florida since we have no snow?

We got the publicist to take some pictures of last night's moon about 5:30 PM as it was just sneaking out from behind a cloud. Results to be determined - but it was beautiful!

We always learn so much reading your moon post Remington. Before we met you we didn't realize all the different full moons had names. Keep up the great work Rem!
