So, what do you think about the Almanac?

Here is what they are predicting for November. We'll put them to the test:

November 2005 1st-3rd. Fair and cold. 4th-7th. Stormy Mid-Atlantic States, then fair and cold. Stormy New England, heavy rains, wet snow possible. 8th-11th. Fair. 12th-15th. Some rain New England, then fair. Rain also Maryland, Virginia area, followed by clearing. 16th-19th. Storm; snow and rain through New England. Increasingly cloudy Mid-Atlantic States. 20th-23rd. Rain Mid-Atlantic States, then fair, colder. More rain and wet snow, then clearing, colder New England. 24th-27th. Unsettled Thanksgiving, with light snow or flurries, then fair. Fair, then rain Mid-Atlantic States, followed by clearing. 28th-30th. Mostly fair.

Is Ben Franklin still writing it? That would be cool. Of course, if he were, we might have to fear that it was actually Ben Franklinstein, and that would be fairly scary.

Anyway, I hope he's right. . . I love a snowy thanksgiving.

This is what they predicted for our current time of October (keep in mind...this was published a year ago).

20th-23rd. Turning milder Northeast. Rain Mid-Atlantic States. 24th-27th.

So far they are dead on. They also line up exactly with what weather.com is predicting for the next week.

If it's going to be cold, it better snow. Cold with no snow sucks.

Yeah, and now you’re wishing you hadn't found out who Snakeman is. Well, welcome to my life. I found it much more pleasant when I thought he was a smarter than average ape. I told them, breeding horses with Owen Wilson, nothing good can come of it.
