A live domesticated rodent named Jimmy, prodded into the budding daylight Tuesday in Sun Prairie, cast no shadow, transmitting the news of an early spring as a light snow fell about his ears, which were partly and ironically shadowed by a comical hat.

The promotional civic exercise in extended forecast meteorological fiction and cheerleading dates to 1948, as Jimmy has appeared in several incarnations, one stuffed.

Tuesday's result is said to mean there will be fewer than six more weeks of winter — not really going out on a limb considering that spring starts on March 20, six weeks and three days from today.
