Groundhogs have mixed reviews for spring

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — One of the world’s most famous groundhogs may have said winter is here to say, but not all agree with him.

Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow Monday, predicting six more weeks of winter, but his western New York counterpart, Dunkirk Dave did not see his shadow.

Phil has an edge on Dave in the years they’ve been predicting on Groundhog’s Day, but each claims to be correct.

Over the next six weeks, the two rodents will be put to the test for who has the most accurate prediction. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
