The rodent has spoken….or something like that…

Groundhog Day in 2023 tells us to prepare for six more weeks of winter. Punxsutawney Phil, the Nostradamus of rodents, saw his shadow on Thursday. According to folklore, the groundhog seeing his shadow means an extended winter season.  Not seeing his shadow means that spring comes early.

Records from 1887 have shown that a groundhog has predicted winter more than 100 times.

Do you think this is a good indicator of the change in seasons?

How much do you believe in a groundhog’s ability to predict things?
