Maplewood’s groundhog saw her shadow

Maplewood had its own groundhog for Groundhog Day. It’s Maplewood Molly and she’s been residing at Traveling Tea. She saw her shadow on Friday, meaning six more weeks of winter.

Traveling Tea owner Kateri Meyer took votes for whether Molly would see her shadow for donations to Missouri Wildlife Rescue Center, which rehabilitates injured, sick and orphaned native wildlife and releases healthy animals to their natural habitat. Meyer raised a little more than $100.
