The irony isn't lost on me that I just clicked 'like' on the Old Farmer's Almanac Facebook page.  It would seem to me that if you're going to keep the name that makes it sound like you're still in the 1800's, you maybe shouldn't ALSO get to keep a social media account from the 21st century, but that is a different argument for another day.

Today, we're going to turn our attention away from this FABULOUS summer day to make note of what the winter of 2016-2017 may look like.  And guess what?  It looks like WINTER!

Cold and snowy, friends.  Can you believe it?!
I'd like to think I'll be able to remember this far-flung forecast each day of the winter so that I can measure it up against whatever that particular day will bring, but I can't even remember what the weather was like 5 days ago.  I would suspect that on March 31, 2017, I'll be able to say "I'm sick of the snowy, cold winter we have had" and I'll be right.
Who knows if this Old Farmer is to be believed.  If you'd like something to fret over, here it is.  I'd rather get back to the sunscreen and the iced tea!
