Ontario’s albino groundhog Wiarton Willie predicts an early spring
Ontario’s much-beloved albino groundhog Wiarton Willie woke up Thursday morning and didn’t see his shadow which means Canadians are in for an early spring.
The furry rodent briefly conferred with the town’s mayor before making his prediction official in front of a boisterous crowd in the South Bruce Peninsula community.
Folklore has it that if the groundhog sees its shadow on Groundhog Day there would be six more weeks of winter.
Pennsylvania Punxsutawney Phil on the other hand didn’t see eye to eye with his Canadian counterparts after he jumped out of his burrow and saw his shadow.
