More Winter or Early Spring

According to groundhogs it all depends on where you live. So much attention goes to Punxsutawney Phil that we forget that he is speaking for the Mid Atlantic states. There are a number of other groundhogs who are dragged out for a local prognostication. So, here are the calls:


Wiarton Willie (Ontario) – Early Spring

Shubnedacadie Sam (Nova Scotia)  – Early Spring

Balzac Billy (Alberta)  – Early Spring

United States

Punxsutawney Phil (Penn) – More Winter

General Lee (Georgia) – Early Spring

Woody Woodchuck (Michigan) – Early Spring

Ms. G (Mass.) – More Winter

Staten Island Chuck – (New York) – Early Spring

Buckeye Buck (Ohio) – Early Spring

There are other groundhogs. But you can see that most are calling for an Early Spring which is good news if you are paying for heating oil. But, if you are counting on Old Phil, don’t put your shovels away quite yet!

How about the Super Bowl. During the first 20 years, they were yawners for the most part. But this was a nail-biter. While I live in Maine, I have to congratulate the Giants on their win. They earned it. For me, it’s on to baseball.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
