T hey are not meteorologists but some people put a lot of stake into their predictions.
We're talking about all those furry prognosticators out there. And this year there's a war between groundhogs.
Pr obably the most famous of them all, Pennsylvania's Punxsutawney Phil told people to prepare for six more weeks of winter Thursday morning.
B ut that made him the minority opinion among his groundhog brethren who seem to think that spring is coming early.
Northwest Ohio's very own Wildwood Willie didn't see his shadow on this Groundhog Day, calling for an early end to winter.
T he real, but stuffed groundhog didn't make a prediction last year because of blizzard like conditions.
W ildwood's naturalist says willie is dead on in his predictions.
A lso predicting an early spring on Groundhog day was Holland's HuckyToo, Buckeye Chuck in Marion, Ohio, Woody the Woodchuck in Michigan and Staten Island's Woodchuck.
S eems Punxsutawney Phil could be wrong if you believe these animal predictions.
