Ground Hog Day Report

(nearly forgot about this)

Yesterday was Ground Hog Day and here's the run-down. First, the Canadian ground hogs.

Wiarton Willie of Wiarton, ON predicted an early spring.

Balzac Billy of Balzac, AB predicted six more weeks of winter.

Snewsie the Gopher of Moosejaw, SK predicted an early spring.

Manitoba Merv of Winnipeg, MB predicted an early spring.*

Winnipeg Willow of The Forks, MB predicted six more weeks of winter.*

Fenwick Flossie of Welland, ON predicted an early spring.

Fred la Marmotte of Val d'Espoir, PQ predicted six more weeks of winter.

Mactacaddy of Mactaquac Park, NB did yearly reports up to 2009, but no report from him has been available this year as of posting.

Shubenacadie Sam of Shubenacadie Provincial Wildlife Park, NS  predicted an early spring.

Next, American ground hogs.

Punxsutawney Phil of Gobler's Knob, PA predicted six more weeks of winter.

Dunkirk Dave of Dunkirk, NY predicted an early spring.

Holtsville Hal of Holtsville, NY predicted an early spring.

Malverne Mel of Malverne, NY predicted six more weeks of winter.

Charles G "Chuck" Hogg of Staten Island, NY predicted an early spring.

Buckeye Chuck of Marion, OH predicted an early spring.

Jimmy the Groundhog of Sun Prairie, WI predicted an early spring.

General Beauregard Lee of Lilburn, GA predicted an early spring.

So the over-all score stands:
Early Spring - 11
Six More Weeks Of Winter - 5
No Show - 1
And the consensus is an early spring this year!

...mind you, it's still a 50/50 chance that any of them are right. But this is all in fun, no?


*(It's curious that The Forks should have different weather from the rest of Winnipeg.)
