Michigan woodchuck predicts 6 more weeks of winter
HOWELL, Mich. (AP) - Michigan's weather-prognosticating woodchuck has called for six more weeks of winter.
The Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News report that Woody stayed put in her home at the Howell Conference and Nature Center on Sunday morning, taken to mean there won't be an early end to the state's cold, white winter.
Nature center Executive Director Dick Grant tells the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus that Woody is 11-4 in weather predictions.
WHMI-FM says the nature center's celebration of the changing seasons includes a crazy costume contest for kids who wear get-ups that represent their hopes for an early spring or for six more weeks of winter. The child with the most outrageous outfit gets a free week at summer camp.
