A sampler of Groundhog Day predictions

While Punxsutawney Phil seems to get all the publicity, there are at least a dozen Groundhog Day celebrations across the U.S. And all these groundhogs get a mixed bag of results when it comes to prognosticating an early spring or six more weeks of winter.

Wikipedia has a table that lists the various Groundhog Day predictions:


Punxsutawney Phil predicted six more weeks of winter. But the general consensus (so far) by knowledgeable groundhogs everywhere is (drumroll) an early spring in 2010! Last time I checked the Wikipedia page, eight groundhogs were predicting an early spring, and five were calling for six more weeks of winter.
