Kennewick Kent predicts an early spring!

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.--  Spring is right around the corner according to Kennewick Kent, who didn't see his shadow on Groundhog Day.

Kent got a little scared Tuesday morning when KNDUs cameras were rolling, but a nearby horse, and friend of his, told us he didn't see Kent's shadow.  This year is the shy youngster's first Groundhog day, after taking over for his dad, Kennewick Kyle.  Kyle passed away last year.
The groundhog family lives on the property of the Safe Harbor Crisis Nursery, an emergency and crisis center for families.
