The 2020 Farmers’ Almanac, released in August, predicted that this winter would be a “Polar Coaster,” meaning that the winter would experience so many ups and downs on the thermometer that it would remind you of riding on a roller … or in this case “Polar”… Coaster.
Well, we’re happy to report that this prediction seems to be “spot on” in many areas, especially Denver.
“Winter started off on a very cold note almost everywhere,” shares editor Pete Geiger, Philom., adding, “and then there was a lengthy mild stretch that had people scratching their heads wondering what happened to ‘Old Man Winter?’ But then the temperatures would dip again reminding us that winter isn’t over.”
Yesterday, meteorologist Cory Rappenhagen of News 9 Denver, Colorado, interviewed editor Pete Geiger to discuss the accuracy of the Polar Coaster Winter prediction, especially in Denver where they have experienced “two big swings” in snowfall so far.
