An early spring? The groundhogs are unanimous.

Now, normally I don't put any stock whatsoever into groundhog predictions, but since they're so furry and cute  (unlike this poor creature), and given the fact that a huge section of North America just got walloped by an epic winter storm, the news is very welcome indeed.

Wiarton Willie (Canada) and Punxsutawney Phil (USA) agree: spring is on its way.

Now for a supercute picture of Shubenacadie Sam (Nova Scotia) to inject some warm fuzzies in your heart, should you be amongst the snowbound today.  By the way, he concurs with his colleagues.

I don't enjoy the cold weather. If spring is on it's way I'm happy.

I would love to welcome Spring into the city right now - I'm over the snow, it should go away with the Christmas decorations in the first week of January

I agree, now I want a groundhog as a pet.

Me too! on Feb 02, 2011 @ 09:49 am

I worked at summer camp for and we had a number of groundhogs that would visit us on our lunch break, they were pretty cute until they got a little too close with those teeth.
