Shubenacadie Sam Predicts Six More Weeks Of Winter

Atlantic Canada will put up with the harsh winter temperatures for six more weeks, according to one furry creature’s annual weather prediction.

Shubenacadie Sam saw his shadow after emerging from his burrow at Shubenacadie Wildlife Park in Nova Scotia.

Folklore says if the groundhog sees its shadow, it means winter will last for six more weeks, while no shadow is a sign of an early spring.

Nova Scotia’s famous groundhog has predicted an early spring or a long winter since 1999. In that time, Sam has forecasted 14 early springs and 11 long winters.
