Summer Weather Safety

While winter may be a season of extreme weather, summer also brings some weather events that can be dangerous. From the horrible outbreak of tornadoes we’ve recently seen, to lightning, hail, and flash floods, summer storms can wreak havoc on your outdoor plans.

Here are a few articles we’ve run on some summer weather extremes, and a poll we did on which storms do people think are worse — winter or summer storms.

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.
