Groundhog Day

The countdown to the traditional Spring Prediction is upon us. Wiarton Willie 60th Anniversary Groundhog Day February 2nd, 2016.

So far we’re trending toward an early spring according to the votes we’ve received on twitter.

Wiarton Willie was a Canadian groundhog who lived in the community of Wiarton in Bruce County, Ontario. Every February 2, on Groundhog Day, Willie took part in the local Wiarton Willie Festival. His role is to predict whether there will be an early spring. Although the original Wiarton Willie died, the Wiarton Groundhog Day celebrations continue each year with successors of the original Willie, also referred to as “Wiarton Willie.” read more from Wikipedia link
