In the CityPulse [sic] News Room, on BreakfastTelevision [sic], I was put on GroundhogWatch [sic] every year because -- after doing it just once -- I already had experience writing about rodent weather prognosticators.
I think I wrote about Groundhog Day a total of 8 years in a row and it always seemed a lot like the movie.
|When I wrote all those Groundhog Day News Stories I tried |
to include the words "Gobbler's Knob" as often as possible
Then there was that one year when Wiarton Willie and Punxsutawney Phil were at (pun intended) polar opposites in their predictions. It threw the entire newsroom into a tizzy, but I'll save that story for next year.
Since I got out of the Groundhog Game™, some new weather groundhogs have arrived on the scene. Shubenacadie Sam hunts for his shadow at the Shubenacadie Wildlife Park in the town of Shubenacadie, Nova Scotia.
However, all those Male Marmota Monax™ are going to have to move over for the new girl on the block. Dundas Donna is from Toronto and is taking the Weather World™ by storm. See what I did there?
