Buckeye Chuck does not see eye to eye with Punxsutawney Phil on Groundhog Day 2010. Nor does Staten Island Chuck.

Even though Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, his counterparts in Ohio and New York did not.

Buckeye Chuck did not see his shadow today, meaning spring is on the way sooner rather than later, according to tradition.

Mayor Bloomberg declared that Staten Island Chuck did not see his shadow either, also predicting a short winter.

What does it all mean? It's hard to say, but this Groundhog Day history will get you up to speed on what the tradition is all about.
