Phil say 6 more weeks of winter but Willie disagrees!

Groundhog Day's furry forecasters are giving mixed predictions on how long winter will last, with three of four so far seeing their shadows — indicating another six weeks of cold-weather misery. Handlers greet Shubenacadie Sam on Monday in Shubenacadie, N.S. The Groundhog Day perennial saw his shadow when he emerged from his burrow, forecasting six more weeks of winter.


Nova Scotia's Shubenacadie Sam came out of his burrow and saw his shadow soon after 8 a.m. AT Monday, which according to tradition means another month and a half of winter weather.


In Pennsylvania, Punxsutawney Phil emerged with the same outlook after also seeing his shadow.

However, in Wiarton, Ont., Wiarton Willie — another rodent burdened with the tourism fortunes of a small community — dissented from his peers. He failed to see his shadow, indicating an early spring. He was operating under heavy cloud, with snow and blowing snow in the forecast from Environment Canada.


In Winnipeg, lesser-known groundhog Winnipeg Willow forecast a later spring, CBC News reported.

n Washington, D.C., Potomac Phil was scheduled to make both weather and politic predictions, CBC's John Northcott reported.  


Groundhog Day 20110202 Last year, only Wiarton Willie was correct when he spotted his shadow.

Neither Shubenacadie Sam nor Winnipeg Willow saw their shadows, thereby forecasting an early spring.
