Clash of the groundhogs: Conflicting predictions pop up

Canada's famous forecasting groundhogs have differing opinions on whether the country will be in for an early spring or continuing frigid temperatures.

In Ontario, Wiarton Willie called for six more weeks of winter, but Nova Scotia's Shubenacadie Sam expects a quicker onset of warmer weather.

According to long-standing legend, a groundhog who sees his shadow after emerging from his den predicts that another six weeks of winter are on the way. One who does not is purported to be forecasting an early end to the cold season.
.......................................... Skipped a bit ................................
Out east, however, Shubenacadie Sam, Canada's other famous furry forecaster, did not see his shadow as he toddled around a small white barn in a Nova Scotia wildlife park.

Cheers erupted from the crowd lining the fence as the chubby brown rodent -- described on his own Twitter feed as a "nape enthusiast, melon lover, digger of tunnels and weather prognosticator" -- stayed outside his den and portended an end to winter.
