Who do you think would be labeled "Weather Forecaster Extraordinary?" How about "Prof. Weatherby Groundhog!" Oh, man, cartoon writers sure loved corny puns back in the "old days." Usually, though, I think they are fun to read and hear.
With a bulletin that cold weather is approaching, all the birds zip up their houses and leave in a hurry. Who's skeptical about the weather warning? Woody, of course. He's like one of these dumb people who get hurricane warnings but stay home....and then disaster hits.

On a lighter note, the village in this story is absolutely beautiful. This is colorful and very nice artwork.
