More than 150 people attended the Marion Groundhog Day ceremony here at Clear Chanel Marion. People came from all parts of Ohio and even a few from the west coast.

At 7:39 a.m. while the snow fell, Buckeye Chuck did not see his shadow predicting that the end of winter is coming soon.

This is the 35th year that Buckeye Chuck has been predicting weather in Marion. In 1979, he was declared the official State Groundhog by the Ohio General Assembly.
