WAUNAKEE – The world-famous weather forecasting groundhog Waunakee Woodrow ran into some confusion today upon seeing his shadow.
Through a spokesperson, Woodrow issued a statement expressing doubt over his course of action.
“Clearly, it is no longer winter, and I cannot in good conscience predict that some inclement weather is pending,” said Woodrow. “The ground rules are somewhat murky on this subject.”
After some consultation with the city council, Woodrow elected to withdraw to his burrow and deliberate his findings for the remainder of the week.
“We’ll have something for you by Monday,” promised Woodrow.
