We Made The News in Colorado! (Polar Coaster Update)

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.

Check out this interesting interview and let us know how the weather has been in your area!

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
