The Great Frognosticator.

GroundFrog Day

Ground Frog Day in Snohomish is the Northwest's counterpart to Groundhog Day. "Snohomish Slew" is the great amphibian Frognosticator. A duel trailer gravel truck delivers Slew to his "Handlers," and they thankfully speak fluent Frogese. Then the drama begins. The big question: Will there be six more weeks of soggy and wet, or six more weeks of wet and soggy?

Slew rarely misses the mark on his great weather frogcast for predicting Spring's arrival in the Pacific Northwest.
