Will Buckeye Chuck Bring Us Six More Weeks of Winter? Find Out During Our Weekend Getaway!
Based deep in German legend, Groundhog Day is looked at with a mixture of hope and anxiety during deep East Coast winters! Ohio has its own seasonal groundhog weatherman in Buckeye Chuck, who has been predicting six more weeks of winter or an early spring for many years.
He’s doesn’t seem afraid of any shadow though, as he’s enjoyed treating us to better weather options for the last four years, even when in disagreement with the famous Punxsutawney Phil from Pennsylvania. Will he make it five in a row?
Buckeye Chuck, Ohio’s only predicting groundhog, has festivities taking place at the local ClearChannel radio station in Marion, Ohio, which is just a short drive from our HideAway Inn! Amid crowds of people bundled in parkas, snow hats, and blankets, Chuck will brave the cold to ascend from his burrow and then meet-and-greet the winter worn attendees from 7-8 a.m.
Plan a getaway to HideAway Inn in anticipation of this winter weekend outing. Stay the night with us in one of our lovely Manor rooms, our themed Loft suites, or exclusive Premiere hideaways. You’ll enjoy a relaxing evening, some warmth in a jetted tub, and a good night’s sleep. That’s all in preparation of us calling you to rise and shine early so we can fill your tummy with a hot breakfast before you bundle up and head down the road to the event.
Celebrate or commiserate with each other following Chuck’s show time back at HideAway Inn by warming by a crackling fire while eating a delicious evening meal in our lovely restaurant or our modern bar and grille. We might even be serving our version of groundhog stew (we’ll pretend ground beef is really groundhog, of course).
