Wally v. Phil

Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow this morning, which means we will see 6 more weeks of winter weather.


Phil has been “predicting” the weather for a while now.  It is believed that Phil is 130 years old. It is stated that he is never wrong either; the president of the Inner Circle of the Groundhog Club just does not translate his predictions accurately making it seem as if Phil got it wrong.


The prediction that is told to us from the president has only been right 39% of the time, but did you know that North Carolina’s groundhog is right 41% of the time?

Sir Walter Wally has been making his predictions since 2000.  He makes his prediction every year at noon in Raleigh.  This year Wally did not see his shadow, so he predicts that spring will come early!


Which groundhog do you believe?
