What does the Farmer's Almanac Predict... In a nutshell...
Who doesn't love predictions? I personally love the farmers almanac and all that it represents. Another resource that relies on the calendar and astrological events. A quick reference to what lies ahead weather wise and it is chock full of tips, from gardening to cleaning house to best days to quit smoking!
So here we are mid-way through January and we have had a couple small doses of snow. The farmers almanac has a secret formula for their weather predictions that will not be revealed, and yet it is trusted by many. Their predictions have been on the money in recent years leading up to events such as Hurricane Katrina and Superstorm Sandy.
For winter 2015, they are suggesting we stock up on firewood, sweaters and hot chocolate. Predictions thus far are not calling for as much snow as last year, but they did mention an El Nino, which would affect the weather world wide by shaking up climates. For now, we are to expect wet, cold weather and wind to go along with it. And if you ask me, seems pretty accurate. So here is a test, they have predicted a 4-8" snow storm for February 4-7. Let's see what we get.
I will keep checking their predictions year round and share anything interesting.
Until next time, keep warm and dry!
