In North America folklore has it that if a groundhog sees his shadow on Groundhog Day he’ll flee to his burrow, heralding six more weeks of winter, and if he doesn’t, it means spring’s around the corner. February 2 is Ground Hog Day and Wiarton Willie, Ontario's official spring predictor did not see his shadow which means an early spring for us!!!! Yay.
Just wondering if this is followed in across the pond as well and if so, what the result was.
