Hi Denny, we haven’t heard of that, but we have heard to “count the fogs in August” to determine the number of snow storms in the coming winter.

Hi Francine and Marie Wraight, our apologies. It appears there’s a glitch with the quiz results on mobile. We are currently fixing. On desktop it works.

I got 70% which really surprises this old gal – thought I had been around long enough to know my weather better than that! Oh, well—it just proves you’re never too old to learn! 🙂

I am going to take the quiz again (I got a C) and write the answers down! Several of the sayings I heard from my mother whose family members were lifelong farmers. I taught all the ones I remember to my children and am now telling my grandchildren. This is truly a lost art. Thank you so much for the quiz!

We’ve always heard “A dry June will scare you to death and a wet June will starve you to death.” (That’s why I missed #6.)

I missed 2 which I got a C. I liked that it gave the correct answers of the ones missed. My Daddy was born in 1913 and had a saying for everything. Just wish I had written them all down. Two reasons I love Farmer’s Almanac. My parents went religiously by what it said, so it’s been a common thing in all of my life. And my childhood is relived thru things like this. Thank you all for the hard work and dedication that’s put into our beloved Farmer’s Almanac!!
