Groundhog Day, Willie Says...

February 2/2014
 
Wiarton Willie, our albino groundhog spring prognosticator, says...
6 more weeks of winter!
 

The cottage isn't far from Willie's home. We visited him in the summer,
but alas he was fast asleep, deep in his burrow.
 
Well anyway... thanks for the info Willie. Hope to see you this summer!

I guess we can't bury the messenger. :) Environment Canada is predicting the same thing. Brrrrrrrrrrrr!

Cute Willie. I hope the summer comes to you sooner.

Buttons said...

Well only six more weeks of winter it can't be as bad as 4 weeks of old fashioned winter in January at least we know March may bring warm:) Hug B

I'm not happy with Willie's forecast! LOL He's cute though!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

It's definitely wintry here....again. No snow, but cold.

Wandering Wren said...

I'm happy with you Guys having six more weeks of winter because that means we have six more weeks of summer! Altho' it has been a tad too hot here...:(

Nice to see cute Willie again :)

Pamela Gordon said...

Yep, even though Shubenacadie Sam in Nova Scotia didn't see he shadow, we know there will be 6 - 8 more weeks of winter! :(

Hi Karen,

Brr, more winter! Thanks for sharing today's blue.

Happy Blue Monday!

If it is really just 6 weeks of winter left, then I can handle it :-)

What a cute groundhog!

ladyfi said...

Cute groundhog. And who knows - like most weather forecasts, he might not be that reliable....?

Sylvia K said...

Such a fun post for the day, Karen!! Love your groundhog!! Have to admit though that I hope his prediction -- like most weathermen -- is wrong!! I am tired of GRAY! But in comparison to your winter, ours has been spring from the beginning!!! Have a great week!!

Muffie said...

Willie must be friends with Phil. Stupid rodents!

Jackie Mc Guinness said...

As long as there is spring when we get back home to Toronto!

Gail Dixon said...

Dangit! Well, it's not too surprising. Six weeks will fly by, hopefully!

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Love the post and a great shot.

Anni said...

Oh no, not six more weeks! Please, can I have spring in three weeks time?

RedPat said...

I hope he is wrong! ;-)

islandwonder said...

What a fun image. Hoping he is incorrect.

Gillena Cox said...

Beth @ E. Lizard Breath Speaks said...

curious - i noticed your note about pinterest ... did it happen to you, that some one posted a picture there? i always wonder how all that works? copyright & all? ( :

have a good week.

Debbie said...

i have zero confidence in this extremely scientific theory!!

jeannettestgermain said...

Hope he's right about the 6 weeks:)

Jim said...

Fun!

LV said...

I hope he gets lost before reaching Texas.

Al said...

Only 6 weeks? That's good news around here, where March and April are our snowiest months!

Sandy Carlson said...

He's the man to know! And time is proving him to be the expert!

Deborah Kay at The Paint Splash said...

oh I am solo over this extreme cold winter. love the carving. Visiting through Mellow Yellow Mondays, have a blessed week!

Stephanie said...

Our photos said...

Gemma Wiseman said...

This groundhog is quite a colourful character.

Nancy Claeys said...

I'm not too surprised at Willie's prediction. :)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

From what I heard this morning about storm fronts, I am pretty sure your groundhog's prediction is right. Oh well, six weeks will just flyby (won't they?)

Lisa Gordon said...

Somehow, there was no doubt about this "finding."
:-)

Me said...

Six more weeks! Thanks for that Willie. :)

Linda said...

Love the sculpture! Not the prognostication so much.

Rambling Woods said...

Ah sleeping this winter away sounds like a good choice
