Farmers’ Almanac Predicts Woeful Winter Weather

The 2014 edition of the Farmers’ Almanac that hit newsstands Monday offers homespun remedies, tasty recipes and a wallop of a wintry forecast that’s too bone-chilling to fathom in a week with highs in the 80s.

“We don’t use four-letter words but when it comes to this winter’s weather the word is c-o-l-d,” said managing editor Sandi Duncan.  “We’re predicting two-thirds of the country will have below-average temperatures for the winter season, and in some areas the temperatures will be biting and piercing.”

If all that’s not enough incentive to head to the grocery store right now to stock up, then choose between these poisons: The Pittsburgh region is right on the predicted dividing line of a winter that’s “bitterly cold and snow filled” (north through New York and virtually all of New England) and one that’s “cold, wet and white” (through West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland and New Jersey).

“You guys are right on the borderline,” Ms. Duncan said. “It looks like it’s going to be a wet winter, and more white than wet in Pittsburgh.”

  1. Oh goody,we are hearing about winter already.We just now recuped from a 6 month long winter last time,with snow in April.
    So much for that “global warming” that the flaming liberals always cry about.
    I like to invite any and all flamings liberals to Pittsburgh for the entire month of January.

  2. Yes…There’s a reason that 97% of scientists agree that global warming is real and is being caused by the carbon emissions from many methods of industrial production and transportation. There’s also a reason why only 6% of scientists are republicans.
