He’s not as popular as Pennsylvania’s Punxsutawney Phil, but Owosso’s Mr. Marmot is just as accurate at predicting weather. If he goes back into his hole on Tuesday, July 25, that means winter’s coming quickly. If he runs away, then we’ll have at least six more weeks of summer.
“What’s a marmot?” you may be asking. Marmots include groundhogs, woodchucks, and ground squirrels. You can check out previous Marmot Days at MarmotDay.com.
