MARION, Ohio (AP) - Ohio is in for six more weeks of winter weather if the “prediction” of the state’s groundhog, Buckeye Chuck, is to be believed.

Unlike Pennsylvania’s famous Punxsutawney Phil, the groundhog in Marion was reported to have seen his shadow Tuesday morning. 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.

The Marion Star reports Buckeye Chuck has been the state’s official groundhog since 1979, and about three-fourths of the rodent’s predictions have proved right.
