Farmer’s Almanac Predicts A Colder Than Normal Winter [POLL]

Since 1818 the folks at Farmer’s Almanac have been predicting the weather.

Last year they predicted a nasty winter here in the Northeast.  There is no doubt that it was.  It was a winter that included an ice storm, tons of snow and cold temperatures.

Farmer’s Almanac hit the news stands this past Monday and when describing this pending winter here in the Northeast they use words like “shivery and shovelry.”

Last year they used words like “piercing,” “biting,” “bitterly” and “frosty.”

Guess we’ll have to wait and see what the difference is.

The publication based in Lewiston that features a fictitious forecaster named Caleb Weatherbee, although Peter Geiger, editor of the Farmer’s Almanac says a real person has been doing the predictions now for thirty years. That real person predicts  ” colder than normal and wetter than usual weather for three quarters of the country east of the Rocky Mountains.”

Geiger told various media outlets, “I would impress the fact that it’s going to be particularly active during January, during February. There are certainly several substantial storms. I would hunker down for a good, solid winter.”

Here in Maine we usually do.

The Farmer’s Almanac is a different publication than the Old Farmer’s Almanac that is based in New Hampshire.
