Will "Buckeye Chuck" See His Shadow?

By February 2, 2014

Follow me on:

Will "Buckeye Chuck" see his shadow, indicating only six more weeks of winter, or will his shadow elude him, indicating a swift end to winter? Groundhog Day, February 2nd, is observed in the United States, Canada, and parts of Australia. The date marks the mid-point between the Winter Solstice and the Vernal Equinox and traces its origins from the French festival of Candlemas.

For more about Groundhog Day, see:

The Cleveland Metroparks, area state parks and the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo are all hosting special Ground Hog Day activities on February 2nd.
