Ohio's weather forecasting groundhog Buckeye Chuck: spring coming soon

Ohio's weather forecasting groundhog Buckeye Chuck says spring will be here soon.
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 in north-central Ohio.
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.
