It's unanimous: six more weeks of winter.

Furry forecasters Wiarton Willie, Shubenadacie Sam, and Punxsutawney Phil all saw their shadows on Groundhog Day, meaning another month and a half of frigid cold and snow.

Wiarton Willie is one of Canada's most famous weather prognosticators, and for the last four years in a row he hadn't seen his shadow, signifying an early spring. And over the past 20 years he's only seen his shadow seven times on Groundhog Day.

Those hoping it would be the same story this year were disappointed when he sided with his prognosticating brethren, including Nova Scotia's Shubenadacie Sam and Pennsylvania's Punxsutawney Phil.

Closer to home, BT Bartholomew also saw his shadow, meaning there's seemingly no doubt that we're going to have to endure this already brutal winter a little while longer.
