Jimmy sees his shadow, predicts 6 more weeks of winter


SUN PRAIRIE (WKOW) -- An expected prediction Sunday as Jimmy the Groundhog steps out to tell the area when spring will come.

Jimmy was up bright and early Sunday morning at Cannery Square in Sun Prairie for his annual prognostication. The groundhog did see his shadow, which according to legend means six more weeks of winter.

Fans who came out to see Jimmy weren't disappointed, despite the prediction, happy to participate in the annual tradition.

Jimmy lives in Sun Prairie with his handler Jerry. Jerry says a fun fact about the groundhog is he likes broccoli, carrots and apples with peanut butter for breakfast.
