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.

Ready for winter to be over

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

Oh my goodness, cutest picture!
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

Me too!

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.
