Woodchuck Weather: Groundhogs dash hopes of early spring

America’s most famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, performed his ceremonial weather forecasting duty this morning & predicts six more weeks of winter. Closer to home, the Howell Nature Center shared a Facebook Live (below) of Michigan’s own prognosticating groundhog, Woody. Sadly, her forecast matched Phil’s so I guess winter will be with us for a while.

Tate got this shot of a woodchuck not hogging the ground at all back in March of 2007. You can see another on his Flickr.
