Connecticut Groundhog Chuckles VIII Predicts Early Spring

Connecticut's Chuckles VIII didn't see her shadow, so she has predicted an early spring on an unseasonably warm Feb. 2. (Published Tuesday, Feb. 2, 2016)

Happy Groundhog Day! Besides one snowstorm that had varied impacts in Connecticut, it barely feels like winter has arrived. 

And it seems it might be over before it can really get underway, according to the prediction of Connecticut's own groundhog, Chuckles VIII. She didn't see her shadow, so she has predicted an early spring on an unseasonably warm Feb. 2. 

Chuckles made the prediction at the Lutz Museum in Manchester early Tuesday morning.

Chuckles has a good track record, predicting a long winter a couple years ago just days before a February blizzard arrived.

Pennsylvania's Punxsutawney Phil didn't see his shadow either, also predicting an early spring.
