It’s Not Over Yet

Today is Groundhog Day. Here at the Farmers’ Almanac we love a little friendly (furry) competition when it comes to predicting the weather. This year, Phil – the most famous furry prognosticator- is agreeing with the Almanac’s outlook of 6 more weeks of winter.

The Farmers’ Almanac, which made its long-range outlook for this winter over 2 years ago is calling for some major snow this month. Good news for snow lovers, not so good for warm weather worshipers.

Here at the Farmers’ Almanac we like snow and can’t wait until more of the white stuff falls.

Good news? February 4th marks winter’s midpoint! More good news – February is only 28 days long.

Hang in there and watch for a fun story on why not to wish winter away coming to our site soon.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
