I always enjoy getting my annual copy of this work. Last year, we had a special event scheduled for February and everyone was nervous about getting snowed out. I reached for my trust Almanac, and it said that the weather would be fine. Indeed, the Almanac was right (of course, no one felt especially confident because of my reference to this publication!).

Each year, there are some unique elements; others are traditional from year to year (such as the weather projections). Some matters of I always enjoy getting my annual copy of this work.

Indeed, the Almanac was right (of course, no one felt especially confident because of my reference to this publication!).

Each year, there are some unique elements; others are traditional from year to year (such as the weather projections). Some matters of interest--the calendar for meteor showers (page 92). On January 24, 25 meteors per hour will rain down in the skies. Best viewing is just before dawn and the meteors will come in from the north. What more information could one want for watching a meteor shower? I'm not a fisherman, but I can see how a person interested in angling might find useful the section on "Best fishing days and times." For instance, the Almanac says that July 1-15 will be prime, when the moon is between new and full. One nice thing about these projections is that one can actually check them out to see if the Almanac is even close. There's also a brief sidebar on how to estimate the weight of a fish. Or, the extent to which manners have or have not changes (pages 168 and following).

Of course, the one part that is so often focused upon is the weather predictions. I am located in Region 3 (which includes central Pennsylvania, and extends from Elmira, NY in the north to Asheville, NC in the south). Since winter can get frisky here, let's take a look at February. Temperature will average a wee bit higher than normal; precipitation (code word for snow) will be average. Dates when snow might hit us include the 11th-15th (snow showers) and the 16th-19th (snowstorm and then sunny) and the 25th-28th (rain turning to snow). So, I'll keep this little prediction (and others) in front of me to see how well the old Almanac does!

Another year and another visit from this old publication friend.

Every year I get the Old Farmer’s Almanac, and every year I read it; but it occurred to me this year that it is indeed a book, and can be quite legitimately counted as such for all usual purposes. And I have yearly copies going back to 1979, just in case anyone wanted to know. I enjoy reading these almanacs because each issue always contains other useful information other than the weather predictions.

Besides the weather forecasts (the Deep South is forecast to have a hurricane in July 2011 – Every year I get the Old Farmer’s Almanac, and every year I read it; but it occurred to me this year that it is indeed a book, and can be quite legitimately counted as such for all usual purposes.

I enjoy reading these almanacs because each issue always contains other useful information other than the weather predictions.

Besides the weather forecasts (the Deep South is forecast to have a hurricane in July 2011 – that’s really going out on a limb), this issue contains the usual reference information (table of measures, wind chill tables, heat index tables, gestation information on various common animals, astronomical information (no eclipses to watch in my area at all next year), plus various interesting articles concerning gardening, baking, farming, and other household pursuits. This is also a good reference book to turn to if you need to figure out how much wallpaper to use in a room, or to determine which plants would be good to plant to attract butterflies.

Granted, a good bit of this information can be garnered from the Internet; but I enjoy hanging the current year’s copy of the Almanac in the bathroom (using the handy hole punched in the corner), and checking out the information that may be noted for each new day in the Calendar Pages. What better way to start one’s day? ...more

Don't read this every year, but this one kept me going all the way through. I like the old-style reporting and little hidden nuggets.

I included this on the Wicca shelf because I use it to track the moon. It's literally on my designated Wicca shelf at home.
