MARION, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio's prognosticating groundhog says spring will come early to the state.
For the fourth year in the row, Buckeye Chuck sent a signal Saturday that spring will come soon for Ohioans. Buckeye Chuck did not see his shadow at 7:39 a.m.
According to the Mansfield News Journal ( ohne.ws/XP5wR5 ), hundreds attended the festivities held at WMRN-AM in Marion in north-central Ohio.
In Pennsylvania, Punxsutawney Phil has made his prediction. He also says expect an early spring.
