URGENT NEWS FLASH!

Breaking News Screen over red background
Just in:
Employees at Farmers’ Almanac headquarters in Lewiston, Maine, report on social media that official scientists from the US Government have demanding to see the Farmers’ Almanacs offices.

“About five people have been seen pushing their way past reception and heading right into editor Pete Geiger’s office,” said an anonymous source in Lewiston, Maine, adding, “they looked very serious and determined.”

Just a few weeks ago there was a lot of press stating that the Farmers’ Almanac is more accurate than government climate scientists (The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center predicted temperatures would be “above normal from November through January across much of the lower 48 states.” Yet the Farmers’ Almanac said quite the opposite). Since then, Almanac employees have been noticing some unusual phone calls and emails from the DC area.

I thought it was a great April fools joke also. I didn’t get to read it until today.
I also agree that Pam went over board with bringing the bible into this, sounds like she’s just plain paranoid/terrified with the thought of government take over. The end of the world! Lmao

I am new to your FB page. Just hit the like button today. I have to say you really had me going! I’m so glad I read on. I was re-reading the first part to my husband as we were both getting very concerned. As I read the next page we had a good laugh and were very relieved! Good one!

Sorry guys, But did not find it funny. And if you believe in the Bible, you will know why some will not find it funny. You do a great job at what you do. But your April fools joke was a lil terrifying.

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.
