StormBowl

StormBowl

When we launched our 2014 edition most of the attention fell on our stormy prediction for the outdoor Super Bowl game to be held at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. It has been well documented that our Caleb is calling for “an intense storm, heavy rain, snow and strong winds” for February 2nd.

Some years we never see the brunt of winter until well into the next year. No question, though, that this winter has arrived and it keeps coming.

I was watching the New England Patriots play the Buffalo Bills yesterday amid tons of rain. This is an open stadium and yes, the cold, wet conditions impacted gameplay. We are about a month out from the most anticipated sports event of the year, and I am sticking with the Farmers’ Almanac prediction for nasty weather. What do you think will happen — a storm that impacts play or sunshine and 60s?

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.
