Willie Predicts Early Spring
Wiarton Willie says the winter that arrived late to most regions of Canada will give way to an early spring. The country's most famous weather prognosticating rodent failed to see his shadow when roused from his slumber this morning.
Three out of three groundhogs polled report that spring will come early this year. Shubenacadie Sam, a resident of Shubenacadie, N.S., came out of his home Friday morning, and didn't see his shadow. Sam's forecast was quickly backed up by reports from Punxsutawney Phil of Pennsylvania and Wiarton Willie.
