Animal Prophecies

February 2nd is Groundhog Day in Canada and the U.S. It is the day when a rodent predicts an early spring based on whether or not he sees his shadow. Paying attention to animal behaviour is a tradition in some cultures for forecasting weather naturally. In Canada, we have:

Wiarton Willie

Balzac Billy

Brandon Bob

Schubenacadie Sam

and in the States there is

Punxsutawney Phil

In these towns (precedes the name of each Groundhog) there is usually some festivity to mark the occasion. Perhaps you’d like to add them to your list of places to visit for animal prophecies.
