2014 Park Official Prognosticator of Spring (POPS) Solange Marmotte has seen her shadow. The Park, therefore, can expect six more weeks of Winter.
The prediction, which was made at precisely 8:07 this morning, was not certified until 8:51. The delay in certification was caused by a disagreement over the validity of the shadow, but experts who attended at the scene have verified that the shadow was indeed Marmotte’s.
The 2014 POPS is expected to return to her burrow later this afternoon.
