Come on Molly – No Shadow!

With the winter weather we've been getting, Spring can't come soon enough.

This Groundhog Day, Feb. 2, if you want an accurate prediction of the weather, Manchester is the place to be.

The first female "Connecticut Chuckles" -- also known as Molly – will be at the Lutz Children's Museum.  She’s not the most famous rodent prognosticator. That would be Pennsylvania's Punxsutawney Phil.

Folklore says that if a groundhog emerges from his, in this case her, burrow and fails to see its shadow, winter will end soon. 

If it is sunny and the groundhog sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter.
Doors to the museum to catch "Chuckles VII" will open at 6 a.m. on Feb. 2.  Molly takes the stage just minutes after 7a.m. 

Let's hope Molly doesn't see anything.
