Lifesaving Winter Tips for the Worst of the Season!

It is not uncommon to get ice on your windshield during the winter but many parts of the U.S. are submerged in a deep freeze. And the subzero temperatures aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. It was -20 degrees on Monday morning  as I left my garage. It didn’t take long to have ice form on the inside of my windshield from my warm breath.

Fortunately, one of our great tips can “save the day”: Fill a spray bottle with 1 part water and 2 parts rubbing alcohol and store it in your car. I was able to pull over, spray the inside of the windshield and drive frost free.

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.
