You’re Welcome, NFL!

You’re Welcome, NFL!

The big game is over… but winter is not!

If you live in the greater New York/New Jersey area, or if you tuned into the Super Bowl last night, you know that fans, the teams and the NFL got lucky — the weather held out and the game was played without any interruptions from Mother Nature. However, as I predicted in the 2014 Farmers’ Almanac, the snow did come, only about 4-5 hours after the end of the big game! The greater New York area is now blanketed in several inches of snow.

While all eyes and focus were on the Almanac’s predictions for February 2nd, I like to remind people that the predictions are actually for a three-day intervals. The snow, which came one calendar day (but really, just a few hours) after the Super Bowl, was accurately predicted in the 2014 Farmers’ Almanac.

On page 36 of the Farmers’ Almanac, I stated that, “even if we are off by a day or two with the timing of copious snow, wind, rain, we’d like to stress that this particular part of the winter season will be particularly volatile and especially turbulent.”

Have you seen the forecast for this week?
We also forecast a major winter storm would hit a big portion of the country, including the New York/New Jersey area this week. Winter is not over, but fortunately for everyone attending yesterday’s game, the wintry weather held off… at least for a few hours.

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.
