While the glamour & glory of spring prognostications have always gone to famous groundhogs such as Wiarton Willie, Shubenacadie Sam and Punxsutawney Phil, these rodents of questionable reliability and dubious character have nothing on MPS’ own Seer of Spring, the ursine-like Ken Jorgenson; whose “Ken-hog” day predictions bring shouts of joy throughout the entire company.
Never fooled by the frequent onset of some early and wonderful faux-spring weather, the “Ken-hog” focuses instead on reams of environmental statistics, signs of nature, over 20 years of experience, and an innate ability to see beyond mere shadows, in order to confidently declare the end of operational snow events for yet another winter season!
Correctly predicting last winter that April would bring more snow than November and December combined, this year’s prophecy identifies March 20th as the true ”last day of winter” for 2017.
So it has been predicted, and so it shall be! And with a stunning track record, marginally better than “pure chance”, to fall back on, you may all rest assured that it is finally time to put away the snowshoes and skis for another year, and start thinking about patio season.
