The groundhogs have decided, our weather overlords have voted (via shadow) that winter will stick around a little while longer.
Sorry east coast, you’ve already had a dreadful winter and it doesn’t look like it’s going to end anytime soon.
Ontario’s Wireton Willie and American Punxsutawney Phil both saw their shadow, meaning a longer winter.
The only dissenting voice in the Groundhog Council was Nova Scotia’s Shubenacadie Sam who did not see his shadow, thus indicating warmer days are ahead. Perhaps he was forecasting the weather out here in southwestern portion of British Columbia only.
Bundle up North America, winter is not going anywhere.
