Canada’s best known furry prognosticators, Nova Scotia’s Shubenacadie Sam and Ontario’s Wiarton Willie, both emerged from their homes this morning and did not see their shadows.

Legend has it that there will be an early spring.

However, the groundhogs’ American cousin, Pennsylvania’s Punxsutawney Phil emerged from his burrow this morning and saw his shadow – meaning six more weeks of winter.

Who will be right?
