Groundhog Day 2010 PREDICTIONS: Local Groundhogs Do Not See Shadows, Unlike Punxsutawney Phil

Posted: Updated:

Most local groundhogs did not see their shadows on Groundhog Day 2010, even though the most famous one of all did.

Punxsutawney Phil's Groundhog Day 2010 prediction was six more weeks of winter, as he did see his shadow.

But how about Buckeye Chuck, Staten Island Chuck, Jimmy The Groundhog, and General Lee Groundhog?

None of them saw their shadows.

The Marion Star reported on Buckeye Chuck of Ohio not seeing his shadow.

Mayor Bloomberg declared the same news for Staten Island Chuck in New York.

Jimmy The Groundhog was treated like a star in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, with a freshly cleared path just for him. But he too did not see his shadow.

And in Georgia, despite some early technical difficulties, General Lee Groundhog did not see his shadow either.

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.

You can also read up on Punxsutawney Phil, who despite his different prediction has quite a following online.
