I wonder if my spotted friend would mind standing in for the traditional groundhog today?
She can be kind of sassy, so I cannot imagine she would like me checking for her shadow.
She's her own woman like that.
Last year Jimmy the Groundhog, the shining star of Sun Prairie Wisconsin's Groundhog Day Festival, bit the Mayor on the ear.
I guess if you're not feeling the festivities, you're just not feeling them.
The National Climate Data Center states that since 1988, groundhogs have only had a 39% success rate.
With our stormy weather forecast for today, it looks like our local whistle pigs might not be seeing their shadows. Therefore, winter will just melt away.
Sounds good to me.
