WANTED: Authorities Issue Arrest Warrant for Punxsutawney Phil

Authorities in New Hampshire have had it with winter and the furry winter-extending prognosticating groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil.

Shortly after the ignominious groundhog saw his shadow on Feb 2–predicting six more weeks of winter–the mid-Atlantic region of the U.S. was hit with a succession of three monster winter storms. The frustration and complaints over the “mountains of snow” led the Merrimack, New Hampshire Police Department to post the following announcement on its Facebook page:

Groundhog

At least the harsh winter hasn’t frozen their sense of humor–at least we hope they’re joking!
