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.
