Hunker Down! Here Comes a Big One!

Hunker Down! Here Comes a Big One!

If you live on the East Coast, you’d better head out now to stock up on milk and bread (actually, you’d be better off picking up these items), because a major storm is on the way!

Dubbed “Nemo,” according to the new winter storm naming system put into place by the Weather Channel this fall, the storm is expected to dump as much as two feet of snow in some areas on Friday and Saturday, with the worst of it centering on Massachusetts and the surrounding states.

The powerful storm is actually a combination of two systems: frosty air coming down from the north to collide with a low pressure front coming up from the south. The storm is expected to create whiteout conditions, so if you live in the northeast, do your best to stay warm and safe at home.

However you feel about the big snow that’s one the way, you can’t say we didn’t warn you. The Farmers’ Almanac long-range forecast for 2013 predicted a major coastal storm, bringing strong winds and heavy precipitation, along the Atlantic seaboard during the early part of February. You might say we “cold you so.”

So happy that I live in Texas. Our 4 days of winter were enough.

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.
