Buckeye Chuck says spring coming soon

MARION, Ohio (AP) — Ohio’s weather forecasting groundhog Buckeye Chuck says spring will be here soon.
Amid a steady snowfall Sunday morning, Buckeye   Chuck predicted the end of winter after he did not see his shadow.
According to The Marion Star, Paul James with WMRN radio says Buckeye Chuck is right “about 70 percent of the time.”
Pennsylvania’s better-known Punxsutawney Phil disagreed with Chuck’s forecast. He saw his shadow, forecasting six more weeks of winter.
More than 150 attended the Marion Groundhog Day ceremony.
Legend has it that if the furry rodent sees his shadow on Feb. 2, winter will last another month-and-a-half. If he doesn’t see it, spring will come early.
