Is it going to rain?

Is it going to rain?

Through observation, there are a number of indicators that it is going to rain. Some of our favorites include:

Leaves show their backside

Birds stay perched on telephone wires

A halo around the moon

Sound travels farther and wider

Swallows fly close to the ground

Flies and gnats bite in vain

Your corn or badly healed broken bone talks to you

The Farmers’ Almanac says so!

But will it rain on your Big Day?

Did you know that the Farmers’ Almanac is often referred to as a “bride’s best friend?” It’s true! We have helped many brides and grooms to be pick a wedding date. However, sometimes as we all know, Mother Nature likes to send her wedding wishes in not so nice ways!

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.
