Different Groundhogs, Different Predictions

(Marion, Ohio) - Depending on which groundhog you believe, we'll have six more weeks of winter, or we'll have an early spring.

Punxsutawney Phil, the world's most famous groundhog, was pulled out of his burrow at 7:25 a.m., and members of Phil's Inner Circle gathered around, reading a scroll that said Phil saw his shadow, so that means six more weeks of winter.

Then, 15 minutes later, Ohio's official forecasting rodent, Buckeye Chuck, underwent a similar ceremony at the studios of iHeartMedia station WMRN in Marion. They said Chuck didn't see his shadow, which tradition says means an early spring.
