GRAND RAPIDS  — Today is the day….it's Groundhog Day!

Soon we will know if the famous groundhog Punxsutawney Phil will predict 6 more weeks of winter or early spring.

Did you know Michigan also has an official state groundhog making this prediction? Let us introduce you to Woody!

She is our official state groundhog who's been predicting whether we have 6 more weeks of winter or an early spring for 22 years now!

Usually there is a big celebration with Woody at the Howell Nature Center, but this year 900 Michiganders registered to join Woody virtually this morning to see what outcome she predicts!
