Farmers’ Almanac Warned of Hurricanes

The 2010 Farmers’ Almanac offered a hurricane outlook for this season that included two hurricane threats for the Northeast states in late August and early September.

To quote our exact overview … ” Finally, the Atlantic seaboard will be in the cross hairs for tropical cyclone activity, starting with an unusually early hurricane threat in mid-June, followed by another threat in late August,  and yet a third threat in early September. And if that isn’t enough, another tropical system could sideswipe the Northeast coast as we make the transition from summer to fall. Typically, tropical cyclone activity over the Atlantic and the Caribbean Sea increases precipitously during the second week of August and reaches its traditional peak on September 10.”

Fortunately the first hurricane (June) never formed, but with Danielle and now Earl on the radar, the Farmers’ Almanac’s outlook/warning may be off by a few days but pretty darn accurate!

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.
