Chuckles the Groundhog : Connecticut Has 6 More Weeks of Winter
Chuckles, Connecticut’s official groundhog, saw her shadow on Groundhog Day declaring that there will be six more weeks of winter.
Really? No kidding Chuckles!
Chuckles VIII made her annual prediction at the Lutz Children’s Museum in Manchester, CT on Groundhog Day morning.
Chuckles didn't just make her prediction willy-nilly. No ... there was preparation for the event.
“Chuckles is keenly aware of her celebrity status as Connecticut’s official groundhog,” a museum press release says. “You may only see her sleeping, but that is because she is up all night consulting with meteorologists, examining satellite photos and reading her farmer’s almanac.”
Admission to the museum's Groundhog Day ceremony was free and went from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m.
Here is a video of Chuckles' prediction last year from WTNH News8's YouTube page:
