Local groundhog Blue Hills Bill prognosticates 2013

HomeDouble right arrow iconEventDouble right arrow icon

The infamous Blue Hills Bill crawled out of his burrow this morning and delivered his annual prognostication to the awaiting crowd in downtown Bruce, Wisconsin.  Read on...

Suffering delusions,

from weather confusion,

To his doctor did go

Blue Hills Bill;


‍For temperature tricks,

Doc offered a fix,

"You must swallow

this nasty big pill."


‍Shadow not missing,

Bill was heard hissing,

"Climate change means

it's time to adapt;‍


With snow in the Hills,

delay not your thrills,

Ski like crazy

'til you are tapped!"

Comments from the crowd

  • 2/2: Ski now or forever hold your skis. --Rice Lake, WI
  • 2/2: Thanks for the advice, Bill.  Carpe diem! --Ladysmith, WI

1.5” big fluffy parachute snowflakes today. Might actually be able to ski on some of our trails — even though the underlying ground isn’t yet frozen. #bluehillstrailwisconsin #winterinwisconsin #crosscountryskiing #xcskiing

Tight corner. Placed orange driveway markers at the edge. Gotta keep our groomers on track. #bluehillstrailwisconsin

After unseasonably warm weather in the first week of November, more wintry weather will start to freeze the trails. Hopefully x-country skiing is just around the corner. This photo was taken on the East Side trails - it shows one of our most important bridges. #bluehillstrailwisconsin

Bridge building in October successfully spanned a small creek that was always a challenge to summertime mowing & wintertime grooming of our ski trails. #bluehillstrailwisconsin
