Groundhog Day is a mystic day where
a groundhog in the northern hemisphere may arise to predict the
coming of spring. On February 2nd, 08:00 each year since 1956, Canada's
groundhog soothsayer, the Great Willie of Wiarton, emerges from
hibernation in his burrow long enough to pronounce his weather report.
Discovered in 1956, he has consistently delivered accurate predictions
on the remaining course of winter. In fact, 90% of the time his
predictions have been correct!
