At least that's the assumption of members of the Slumbering Groundhog Lodge.
As lodge members prepare for their annual February 2 prognostication, they are also anticipating additional Washington-level appointments.
"We understand several of our members are being considered for the Trump administration," said Rick Rankin, Hibernating Governor of the lodge. "We understand some of those appointments will be made on Groundhog Day."
The lodge's members will also forecast the continuation of winter or the early arrival of spring on February 2. The prediction, made from the Pinnacle of Prognostication, has been correct for more than 100 years, Rankin said.
