Whether it be Wiarton Willy in Ontario, Shubenacadie Sam in Nova Scotia or Punxsutawney Phil in Pennsylvania, people were all watching early this morning to see if the groundhog glimpsed his shadow.
February 2nd, Groundhog Day, is a day that marks this interesting ritual. If the groundhog doesn't see his shadow, it means an early spring. However, when he emerges from the ground and spies his shadow, it means 6 more weeks of winter. Yuck!
In my part of the world, the results were:
Yep, 6 more weeks of winter for me. Curse that little rodent!
Oh...and by the way, Historica Canada states that a study of weather data shows the two Canadian groundhogs are only right 37% of the time. So much for predictions!
Guess I'd better not put away the long johns yet.
Good Night for now.
