Almanacs foresee bitter winter, but Paul Douglas takes it with a big grain of road salt


Minnesota and much of the rest of the United States are in for an especially frigid winter, according to the newly released Farmers’ Almanac and its older rival, which comes out later in August.

In its 200th anniversary edition unveiled Monday, the Farmers’ Almanac said a deep freeze will grip the Northern Plains, the Great Lakes, the Midwest, the Ohio Valley, the mid-Atlantic and New England. For a warm winter, head west, said the folksy, Maine-based publication.

A local meteorologist was quick to call the almanac a curiosity that lacks “scientific validity.”
