Smith Lake Jake
Smith Lake Jake, weather prophet extraordinaire, is Alabama’s true weather forecasting groundhog. According to legend, if Smith Lake Jake sees his shadow, he’ll return to his den and winter will continue for another six weeks. If he doesn’t see his shadow, spring will arrive early. Jake is a house groundhog who likes cereal, spaghetti, Keebler Pecan Sandies, and — of course — Groundhog Day! Jake is famous for his impressive hat collection.
