An Early Spring Has Been Predicted

We interupt your day to bring you the following news bulletin---
#717 Groundhog

If you missed the news on Monday, I am VERY happy to tell you that Ontario's Wiarton Willy predicts an early spring!   Yippee!!!  That is good news for all of us freezing up here in Canada.  For those of you who may be unaware, Wiarton Willie is the official groundhog day predictor for whether spring will come early or late in Canada.  Of course at the time of his prediction, a massive snowstorm storm swept over central Canada and more bad weather is expected.  Apparently, it has been suggested that our Wiarton Willie is being rather optimistic this year making him a glass-half-full kind of guy.  However, if he is then his lesser-known buddy, Winnipeg Willow is an optimist as well.  Unfortunately, his other counterparts, Nova Scotia's Shubenacadie Sam and Pennsylvania's Punxsutawney Phil don't seem to agree with Willie's and Willow's predictions as they both spotted their shadows.

Given that the temperatures these past few weeks in Northern Ontario have been running in the minus 20s to minus 30's degrees Celsius, I'm REALLY hoping Willie gets this one correct.  Last year, Willie correctly predicted the extremely long winter that plagued much of Canada; so there is hope his prediction will come true this year as well.  .If he does get it right, you'll be able to start putting away those snow shovels and start taking out your umbrellas and sunglasses very soon!

  1. Well I'm for one living on the west side of Canada, am hoping that Willie has predicted correctly.... we've had pockets of snow (one record falling storm) and more warm weather and rain which is very unusual for us.
    Great post, Lisa! So enjoyable! And I didn't know about Winnipeg Willow or Shubencadie Sam....
