It was October and the Indians on a remote reservation asked their new chief if the coming winter was going to be cold or mild. Since he was a chief in a modern society he had never been taught the old secrets of weather prediction. When he looked at the sky he couldn't tell what the winter was going to be like.

Nevertheless, to be on the safe side he told his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village should collect extra firewood to be prepared.

But being a practical leader, after several days he got an idea. He went to the phone booth, called the National Weather Service and asked, "Is the coming winter going to be cold?"

"It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold," the meteorologist at the weather service responded.

So the Chief went back to his people and told them to collect even more firewood in order to be prepared.

A week later he called the National Weather Service again. "Does It still look like it is going to be a very cold winter?"

"Yes," the man at National Weather Service again replied, "it's going to be a very cold winter."

The diligent Chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect every scrap of firewood they could find.

Two weeks later the Chief called the National Weather Service again. "Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?"

"Absolutely," the man replied. "It's looking more and more like it is going to be one of the coldest winters ever."

"How can you be so sure?" the Chief asked.

The weatherman replied, "The Indians are collecting a **** load of firewood."

Sorry to necro this thread but it looks so far like the Farmer's Almanac was right!

Obama wants to increase taxes on oil and gas drilling. Obama is concerned about climate change. Hell, we are paying his heating bills. He should talk to the people who are buying $5.00 PG Propane. It seems his Wind Mills are not keeping people warm.

I don't even bother to Watch the SOTU address anymore. I have not watched one since RMN was president, and even he wasn't as good a liar as this guy is...and I was 13 when he left office!

I like the Farmer's Almanac. Lots of good info in there and it's often right about predictions.

I have faith in the monthly weather predictions in the farmers almanac. I haven't really monitored the daily predictions. We have an excellent weatherman in Greg Fishel. He predicted Fran coming 100 miles inland with hurricane force winds. He predicted the record snowfalls in 2000. The NWS forecast was 2" to 3" of snow. We got over 2' of snow. Countless other times he ignored the NWS forecast to make an accurate forecast. Usually when he ignores the NWS forecast he promises he will do the weather standing in the WRAL garden fountain if he wrong. Only once in over 20 years he has been in the fountain. When a weather forecaster is willing to literally stand behind his forecast I believe him.

I would agree that the almanac is pretty good about predicting trends and patterns,, it was never meant for local specifics,,, as stated earlier,, information for agricultural uses has been its primary concern and a lot of the older farmers up here in OH10, use it quite regularly with good results as far as they are concerned, if it works for you, then use it, like any other resource.

You all in the Midwest, send some of that moisture & snowfall to the southwest and west coast regions. It maybe cold; but, too dry here!
