Groundhog slated to make his predictions at 11:22 a.m.
MARION BRIDGE — Cape Breton’s own Two Rivers Tunnel is expected to crawl out of hibernation this morning at 11:22 a.m. to predict the fate of the rest of this winter. If he sees his shadow, it’s six more weeks of winter. If he doesn’t, expect an early spring. Environment Canada is predicting a cold, cloudy day with a 60 per cent chance of flurries so make your own predictions.
The locally-based furry forecaster does have a pretty good record when it comes to predicting what’s ahead, says Two Rivers Wildlife Park employee Kelly MacDonald. “He was the only one who had it right last winter,” she said, adding that the annual ceremony will kick off at 11 a.m.
