Six more weeks of winter: Shubenacadie Sam

We are getting six more weeks of winter according to Shubenacadie Sam.

Nova Scotia's favourite rodent made his prediction a few moments ago when he came out of his burrow at Shubenacadie Wildlife Park.

Sam saw his shadow and fled, meaning we are in for six more weeks of wintery weather.

According to folklore, if he had not seen his shadow, spring would have come early.

Shubenacadie Sam has been making weather predictions for the past 31 years.
