Groundhog Day

Feb 2 and we’re half way through winter and it all comes down to who you believe, or who you want to believe.

Our own Wiarton Willie  in southern Ontario didn’t see his shadow as didn’t Shubenacadie Sam, from Nova Scotia. So here in Canada we can expect an early spring, although we really haven’t had much of a winter yet. But wait a newcomer in Val d’Espair Quebec saw his shadow so he’s predicting 6 more weeks of winter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Of course the most famous prognosticator of all, Punxsutawney Phil emerged from his burrow on Gobblers Knob and saw his shadow, and at the Staten Island Zoo, Staten Island Chuck, did not.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So now it’s official, there will be 6 more weeks of winter, or spring will arrive in one and a half months. You can count on it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

By the way if you want to see a nice movie get Groundhog Day starring Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell.
