Groundhog Day Coin Flip

Mon Feb 2 20:08:39 2009 EDT (-0400 GMT)

After learning today that Groundhogs have about a 30% accuracy record for predicting the end of winter I’ve decided to get in the game myself: I’ve flipped a coin.

The rules were:

  • Heads: Spring comes early (good for a head cold)
  • Tails: 6 more weeks of winter (a long tale)

This year’s result: Tails – 6 more weeks of winter

6 more weeks of winter agrees with with Wiarton Willie and the rest. I don’t know if that is a good start.
