Wrong about the cat 5 storms. Even Lilli was a cat 5 storm. For some reason it lost steam before landfall. We get hot-spots in the gulf-stream just off the coast and they cool off just before landfall.

I did pretty well for not living in the coastal regions of the US! I got 50% of the answers right and have not been physically in the path of a hurricane! I’ve lived in central Illinois my entire life! We get tornados and floods in our areas!

I beg to differ…when the eye of Irma passed just 3 miles from my home on Saddlebunch Key… in the Florida Keys… the Weather Channel had a representative taking wind readings just down our street. He clocked 156mph sustained winds. My neighbor’s wind meter busted when it reached 157mph….

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.
