The official groundhog of Massachusetts made her own winter weather prediction.
– News covered by Quincy Quarry News with commentary added.
Massachusetts’ official groundhog is Ms. G and she lives at Mass Audubon’s Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary in Lincoln.
See a video of her seeing her shadow yesterday here and so by tradition calling for another six weeks of winter.
Conversely, however, Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow and so calling for an early spring.
While Quincy Quarry agrees that males are all but clueless when it comes to Groundhog Day, given that today’s both sunny and near balmy weather today would suggest perhaps groundhogs‘ weather forecasting skills are more hype than actually effective.
At the same time, however, the Quarry knows all too well not to even merely but consider questioning female intuition.
