In the afternoon it got pretty warm, so I went to the zoo to visit a weather expert. The zoo where I live doesn't have a resident groundhog (at least not on the official list of residents) so I decided to talk to the next best expert – a prairie dog.
"Excuse me! Sir? How many more weeks of winter?"
He didn't seem too eager to talk. But from the long shadow cast by his posterior, I think it would be a good idea to keep the scarf and mittens handy.
