The Icicles and Snow Piles are Growing

Today is bright. Very bright. The sky is blue. The sun is out. And there’s white snow reflecting the bright light everywhere.

Our office in Lewiston, Maine, did not get as much snow as many other places (I won’t even mention Chicago!) yesterday, but we did get about 9 inches of the white stuff.

The piles of snow are getting high and the icicles are growing. Here are a few pictures from outside of our office.

How are the piles at your house? Does your grocery store parking lot look more like a ski resort? Do the icicles around your house hang dangerously from your roof?
Share your observations here and if you’d like share your pictures on our Facebook page.

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.
