Weather Tips From the Old Farmer’s Almanac

Our snow here was disappointing because the useless meteorologists had originally predicted 3-5 inches of snow, and as the day went on and nothing happened, they changed the forecast to accommodate the increasingly boring weather. Why do we still let them get our hopes up?

Anyway, the Old Farmer’s Almanac has something to say about the weather. It isn’t a day-to-day forecast, but it’s something that predicts long-term weather forecasts. Here is what it says:

Always expect a thaw in January.

Fog in January brings a wet spring.

He who drops a coat on a winter day will gladly put it on in May.

If on January 12th the Sun shine, it forshows much wind.

Every bit just as good or better than the ridiculously wrong predictions of the weather men. How they can be so wrong all the time and yet continue to make predictions is jaw-dropping.

    They keep forcasting snow for us but all we get is a light dusting, soon gone. It is snowing as I write so we’ll see what happens this time!

    • When we hear the news about England here, we get the impression the whole place is covered in ice and snow. Why do they make such a big deal out of nothing? It’s just weather. We think maybe they get bored and so they have to hype (and name) every flurry.

      If your snow does turn out to be anything at all, that’s good! Unless you don’t like snow, of course.
