While I am a follower of the Old Farmers Almanac weather prognostications, here in West Central Texas (Comanche and Brown counties) the forecasts have been anything but on target. We have experienced unusually dry conditions. Our only hope is an exceptional change for the better or at least a return to normal or average precipitation as indicated in the “OFA ” recaps. My question is what has negatively affected these forecasts?

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.
