As you may (or may not) know, today is Groundhog Day. Today, some select groundhogs will rise from their winter hibernation to make a short but anticipated appearance. If the groundhog sees his shadow, he’ll pop right back into his hole, telling us there is six (or more) weeks left of winter. If he does not get frightened by his shadow, that means spring is right around the corner.
Our own local groundhog, Manitoba Merv can be somewhat of a ‘fraidy-cat. I didn’t want to leave anything to chance, so today I have told Poppy she can stand in and give her prediction.
How do you think she did?
