Almanac says get ready for colder, snowier winter
The Dublin, N.H.-based Old Farmer's Almanac which, at 222, is believed to be the oldest continuously published periodical in North America, says a drop in solar activity and a change in ocean patterns is pointing to colder-than-average temperatures and higher-than-average snowfall totals.
Last month, the Maine-based Farmer's Almanac, said much the same. The younger cousin has been publishing for a mere 197 years.
The Old Farmer's Almanac predicts a cold winter for every region but the Lower Great Lakes, Upper Midwest and the northern states of the Northeast.
The 2013 edition officially comes out Tuesday.
