Happy Groundhog Day!


By Tracey Walshaw, staff

According to Punxsutawney Phil (in Pennsylvania) and Shubenacadie Sam (in Nova Scotia) those areas will see six more weeks of winter but Wiarton Willie (Ontario) and Balzac Billie just North of Calgary (who is not a real groundhog) predicted early spring. By the way did you know that the first day of spring is officially almost 7 weeks away?

Environment Canada is predicting a colder than normal February across Canada.

Do you put your faith in these predictions? I prefer to put my faith in Meteorologists like David Spence who tells us that predicting weather, especially in Southern Alberta, is anything but an exact science!

It’s all just good fun!

Meanwhile the famous groundhogs have gone back to hibernating and they won’t emerge again until the ground warms up.
