Woody The Woodchuck Said What?! Will There Be Sun or More Snow in Michigan?
Happy Groundhog Day!
If this day confuses you as it confuses me, I am glad I am not alone.
But for those, you live and breathe by the groundhog.
What do you think?
Will we have six more weeks of winter or is an early spring on the horizon?
What Did Punxsutawney Phil Say?
Punxsutawney Phil made his prediction earlier this morning at Gobbler's Knob.
Unfortunately, the groundhog says it will be six more weeks of winter.
Phil also saw his shadow in 2022, giving us six more weeks of winter. 2023 now marks the 108th time Phil's shadow has been seen since the tradition began in 1887.
What is the difference between Woody The Woodchuck & Punxsutawney Phil?
While Punxsutawney Phil is looking for his shadow, Michigan's Woody The Woodchuck does something completely different.
She said forget my shadow.
She runs out of her "house" at the preserve. If she stays out for long enough, we consider it a sign we'll see an early winter. But if she runs inside quickly, we should, too, because we're getting six more weeks of the white stuff.
