Happy Groundhogs Day!
If it is cloudy when a groundhog climbs from its burrow, then spring will come early. If it is sunny, the groundhog will see its shadow and retreat back into its burrow, and the winter weather will continue for six more weeks!
Groundhogs Day advocates claim that the Groundhogs prediction are accurate 75%-90% of the time. However, the National Climatic Data Center reports that overall accuracy of the predictions have a 39% rate.
Today, out of the 23 official groundhog celebrations, 20 groundhogs predicted an early Spring, while 3 predicted 6 more weeks of Winter. What are you hoping for, Spring or 6 more weeks of Winter?
