Beau recognized by Congressman Linder

General Beau Lee was recently recognized by U.S. Seventh District Congressman John Linder, who commended Beau for his superior record of weather prognostication and even offered his wish for a particular outcome on February 2.

“I am pleased today to recognize the accuracy of Gwinnett County’s outstanding weather prognosticator, General Beau Lee,” wrote Linder in a letter to the Game Ranch staff. “Every year on Groundhog Day, Georgians, and indeed the entire Southeast, can count on General Lee to predict whether or not spring is just around the corner.”

The Congressman continued, “The credentials of General Lee are impressive. Not only has he been recognized for his efforts by four Georgia Governors, but the National Weather Service has twice commended the accuracy of his predictions. The prediction accuracy does appear to have surpassed that of his colleagues.

“Those of us envisioning the beauty and warmth of an early Georgia spring certainly hope that he does not see his shadow next week,” the Congressman concluded.

Congressman John Linder represents Georgia’s Seventh District, which includes parts of Bartow, Cherokee, Forsyth, Gwinnett and Paulding Counties. A former dentist and businessman, Linder was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1992 and has served in a number of leadership roles during this time. [Web site:]
