Maybe this is why winter showed up yesterday….
Wiarton Willie died on the weekend.
The 13-year old groundhog—-spent the past 11 years coming out with his predictions for Groundhog Day…
The Mayor of Wiarton said he died in his sleep—-but had been quite frail for a long time.
So—the town is holding a “celebration of life” on September 30th–to honour the little guy….
In the meantime—there’s a 2-year old groundhog who’s going to assume the role of the new Willie—and will take on that job–once that ceremony is over.
