Howdy folks - I'm Balzac Billy, and this is my home on the Internet. Thanks so much for stopping by.
I am known as the "Prairie Prognosticator" here in beautiful Balzac, Alberta.
Every year on February 2, I pop my head out of my burrow, from a long winter's nap, to determine whether we are going to have a long winter or an early spring!
Last year's burrow at Blue Grass Nursery Centre was the perfect fit, so I've decided to keep my home right where it is! I'll see you in February for the Annual Groundhog Day Pancake Breakfast.

GROUNDHOG DAY IS COMING!
The 2014 breakfast was a great success, full of delicious food, an entertaining band, wonderful volunteers and sponsors and over 200 attendees! Watch below. Fortunately, when I awoke that morning and popped out of my burrow I did not see my shadow which meant we were in for an early spring, let's see what 2015 brings!
