Relax!  Chill out!  Calm down!  It's all going to be OK.  The only blizzard you'll be getting tomorrow is if you visit the local DQ.  If you're following the OLD Farmer's Almanac (very different from the Farmer's Almanac), the weather prediction is much different then what we are currently being told.

According to the 226 edition of the Old Farmer's Almanac (which claims to have an 80% accuracy rate), in the Northeast:

January 1-6: Sunny & Cold
January 7-11: Flurries, then sunny & mild

It also states we will see 3" of precipitation for the month of January.

But, according to The National Weather Service (in Gray) we are in for blizzard-like conditions with up to 10" of snow accumulation.

Ok, what do we believe?  Do we prepare for the first blizzard of 2k18?  Play it safe.  Hope for the best, expect the worst.  Be pleasantly surprised IF we end up with much less than predicted.
