It looks like Ontario's Wiarton Willie, the town of Wiarton's albino groundhog, is wrong this year. Willie called for six more weeks of winter. However Nova Scotia's groundhog Shubenacadie Sam called for spring instead! Pennsylvania's Punxsutawney Phil agreed with Shubenacadie Sam. So two out of three is not bad, spring certainly looks like it is here.
