It’s Official: Queen Charlotte Declares An Early Spring


There’s barely been a winter so far this year in Charlotte, but is one still on the way? Discovery Place Nature’s resident groundhog was up early this morning to make her prediction.

At a special media event held at 7 a.m. on Groundhog Day, Queen Charlotte made it known that she expects the region to roll right into an early arrival of spring.

To make her prediction, Her Royal Highness selected from two different bowls of treats, each representing a different weather fate. This year, Queen Charlotte took her time to choose which bowl she’d settle on, ultimately choosing an early spring without much hesitation.
