We are techincally in the winter months but it has yet to really feel like winter, more like late fall. Temps have been cooler, but we have seen more rain than snow. Most people will call me crazy but there is something about the snow that I love. Maybe it stems from growing up and just loving to be out side. When my brothers and I were little we would always be the first kids outside all bundled up thanks to my Mom. Our activities usually inluded time trials on our little kitty kat snowmobile we used to have, building jumps for sledding, skating in the backyard rink my father used to make for us, or trying to hustle and make money shoveling driveways. Maybe it was the potential to have no school. Either way if there was snow, I was outside playing in it.

Fast forward 20 years later and nothing has really changed except I guess I have to wrok everytime it snows( Call us for your snow removal estimates!) It doesnt really bother me because its snow. Its cool. School doesnt get cancelled anymore but everything turns white and I still get that same feeling. Most people I know will complain about the snow, but they're a few that like to take advantage of what unique activities the winter months can offer.

I was messing around on the Farmers almanac this morning and found some scientific information that made me feel like a weather guy. Unfortunaately for most of you Southern New England is supposed to see more snowfall than average, but we are supposed to have warmer than average temps. Which means it will probably melt and make our cars a salty mess. Good for our car wash owners. I guess well see how accurate this really is.

Which got me thinking, what is the Farmers Almanac and why is it so rellevant. Well the story starts in 1815. Editor Robert B. Thomas wasa writing the alamanc and was interupted, sick, pre occupied with work, there are many reasons, anyways he predicts rain, sleet, and snow in July. Summer 1816 comes around and to the disbelief of many it does snow sleet and rain. Mostly inpart to the eruption of Mount Tambora. Its known as the year without summer. The Farmers Almanac instanly gained its reputation. Today the almanac is more scientific but they still use a "secret formula", which is comprised of histroical data. Its headquarters is in Dublin New Hampshire. The almanac claims a 80% accuracy rate but there is not much data to back it up.

To me it seems more like a generalization but for some reason it has been around for 225 years and continues to stay relevant. Either way it sounds like we just have to wait and see.
