I was stationed at Eglin AFB for a few months and had the pleasure of guarding and walking around a squadron of SAC F-4's at night during November and December. Caught pneumonia and spent a week in the base hospital. It does get disagreeable in Florida in the winter. I also guarded the SR-71 Blackbird but that was in a hanger and was pretty cool.

Same. Might as well flip a coin. They have predicted "worst in history" winters here for the last several years. No snow to speak of since 2010. What a joke.

The Farmers Almanac is for entertainment purposes only. I would rather read something else, anything else.

I think the F.A. should try their hand at hurricane predictions (Or do they already?). They'd have to be better than what we have now.

This weatherman seemed to think that the almanac was worth taking into account as long as you don't expect pinpoint accuracy.

And heck meteorologists are wrong half the time too.

the farmer's almanac is used to plant crops by when to harvest what the cycles of the moon are etc. hence the name farmer's almanac. its not meant to be a pinpoint weather predictor but simply a means of consolidating information on when the best time to plant crops is/was.

altho it IS far more accurate than the national weather service...
