Forget the Groundhog!

This is about 3 weeks too late, but worth posting anyway: Turns out that in Louisiana, rather than relying on the Northeast fave "Punxsutawney Phil," they turn to "Nonc Nutria," or "Uncle Nutria" (Myocastor coypus), for their weather predictions. As reported by The Daily Advertiser, this past Groundhog Day, Nonc Nutria saw his shadow, indicating that the state should be prepared for 6 more weeks of winter.
