Punxsutawney Phil and Wiarton Willie predict 6 more weeks of Winter…

groundhog

When Punxsutawney Phil in Pennsylvania and Wiarton Willie in Ontario see their shadows on Groundhog Day it means we will see six more weeks of cold, snowy winter weather…

As luck would have it, groundhog day 2014 was bright and sunny so these two groundhogs could indeed see their shadows when they climbed from their respective holes.  Or maybe it was the shadow of the snowbanks all around them, at least in this part of Ontario, that they saw…

Similar rodents in Quebec and Nova Scotia did not see their shadows, meaning the winter weather there will end shortly.

Unfortunately for us here in Ontario, Environment Canada has also predicted that the cold, snowy weather we have been experiencing will last quite a bit longer, at least throughout most of February.

Regardless of what the groundhogs think they saw and what Environment Canada has predicted, I sure hope we do not have to endure another six weeks of this cold and snowy weather…After all, they have been known to be wrong!

  1. I don’t know Wiarton Willie, but it seems to me that you may be doomed to six more weeks of winter after all. So sorry! I have it on good authority that rodents never lie! ox
