Today is Groundhog Day! On February 2nd, people in North America look to their favourite groundhog to predict the weather.
Tradition says that if the groundhog doesn’t see his shadow, it will be an early spring. If he does see his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter.
Canada’s two most famous groundhogs were out and about today and this is what happened:
In Nova Scotia, Shubenacadie Sam came out of his burrow and saw his shadow. That means there are six more weeks of winter!
In Ontario, Wiarton Willie did not see his shadow, which means there will be an early spring!
Which groundhog is correct? Only time will tell. In the meantime, enjoy the weather wherever you are!
Have a great day,
