Countdown to Groundhog Day

Two forecasters provide early Groundhog Day predictions, kicking off the 2022 Groundhog Day season

Groundhog Day may still officially be 4 days away, but 2 prognosticators have already given their early predictions for the holiday.

Buffalo Bert, one of the most well known groundhogs in Buffalo, New York, gave his annual prediction at the 9th annual Buffalo Groundhog Day on Saturday. Buffalo Bert was awoken from his hibernation by shouts of ‘Wake up, Buffalo Bert!’ from the assembled crowd, and then pulled out of the barrel he was sleeping in. Bert then told prediction to his Groundhog (mascot) associate, Buffalo Mack. The verdict was a familiar one: 6 more weeks of winter. According to our records that is the only prediction Bert has ever provided.

Later in the day Snohomish Slew in Snohomish, Washington also predicted that there would be six more weeks of winter. Slew remained silent during the prediction ceremony, indicating that spring would not arrive early (if they croaked it would mean an early spring).

Well it certainly isn’t looking good for the arrival of an early spring, but there are still so many more prognostications to come.
