Not to be confused with the Farmer's Almanac, which is the new kid on the block compared to the Old Farmer's Almanac, the Old Farmer's Almanac has, according to their website, been at this weather prediction game since 1792 (229 years). The Farmer's Almanac is the relative newcomer, publishing their first almanac in 1818, the year Illinois became a state.
Whenever I think about the weather predictions offered up annually in the Old Farmer's Almanac, I think about a piece I read years ago that said something to the effect of their forecasting being to meteorology what astrology is to astronomy.
