Dissention In the Family Ground-Hog Day Predictions 2017

Dissention In the Family Ground-Hog Day Predictions 2017

Feb 2 is traditionally called Groundhog Day, which is when that that chubby rodent is awakened too early so that he can come out of its burrow to predict the possibility of winter's end.

Regardless of what the weather forecasters might think with all of their scientific gadgets and data, we still look to Nature for the possibility of an early spring.

This year, the family of groundhogs are inconsistent in their predictions. In Gobbler's Nob PA, Punxsutawney Phil, probably annoyed at being rousted from bed so early, and after almost biting one of the assembled dignitaries, predicted another 6 weeks of winter. It could be a Central USA conspiracy as Buckeye Chuck in Marion Ohio also saw his shadow.

Meanwhile, back here in Connecticut, where we have Chuckles our own groundhog prognosticator, who resides at the Lutz Children's museum in Manchester, CT calling for an early spring. It makes sense as we have a very overcast day in our state so it would be very difficult to see a shadow.

So who is one to believe?

Common sense would suggest that always trust the ones closest to you which would mean we will not have that dreaded 6 extra weeks of winter. Of course in years past, when the shortened forecast was given, we got enough snow in that shortened period to wish it had been drawn out over a longer time.

Of course it's no secret that the flow in Connecticut is never the same as the rest of the country so could Chuckles just be trying to be different as well? Only time will tell and when March does come in will there be votes of impeachment for Chuckles?
