The groundhog saw his shadow on the Feb 2 in this area so we can expect another six weeks of winter. The weather network, which is somewhat more reliable, predicts that the jet stream will bend to the south drawing cold air from the Arctic to southern Ontario through the month of March.
This happened in 2015 and we had a very late spring. Traditionally the start of the maple season is March 15th in this area. We plan to be ready to go by March 1st just in case the weatherman is wrong!
