DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Dozens packed the Boonshoft Museum Sunday afternoon for Dayton’s annual Groundhog’s Day celebration.

Rosie the groundhog made her appearance , but she did not see her shadow, therefore predicting an early spring.

However, the world’s most famous furry forecaster Punxsutawney Phil disagreed with Rosie’s prediction. At a celebration at Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, Phil saw his shadow signaling six more weeks of winter.

Rosie also picked the Denver Bronco’s to win Sunday’s big game.
