Bundle up, Connecticut, we're having six more weeks of winter.
It wasn't the answer the dozens of children and other onlookers who gathered before dawn Saturday at the Lutz Children's Museum in Manchester wanted. But when Connecticut Chuckles VIII, the newly sworn-in state groundhog, poked her head out of her hole and saw her shadow ... well, what's a human to do but reluctantly put on his heavy coat and leather gloves and hope for the best.
This was Chuckles VIII's first time making the much-awaited annual pronouncement, as Connecticut Chuckles VII tragically passed away early last year just after making her 2012 prediction.
Meanwhile, over in Pennsylvania, Punxsutawney Phil determined that Spring is coming! Which groundhog will turn out to be more accurate? Only time will tell.
Do you agree with Chuckles VIII that winter will continue for six more weeks? Tell us in the comments!
