It’s Groundhog Day (again) and the rodents can’t agree when spring will come
It’s Groundhog Day — the day millions of North Americans turn to weather prognosticating rodents in the hope they’ll call for an early spring.

And Wiarton Willie, Canada’s most celebrated of all its furry forecasters is predicting an early spring.

On the East Coast, Nova Scotia’s Shubenacadie Sam was the first out of his burrow this morning to make his prediction to a worldwide audience via webcam, and sadly for those hoping for an early spring, the pride of Shubenacadie did see his shadow.

Stateside, Pennsylvania’s Punxsutawney Phil is generally regarded as the groundhog of record and his prediction this morning is for an early spring. (Keith Srakocic/The Associated Press; Frank Gunn/The Canadian Press; Andrew Vaughan/The Canadian Press)
