I have been looking online all night for a way to compare the two almanacs that people look at… the OLD FARMERS’ ALMANAC and the FARMERS’ ALMANAC, but I haven’t found any articles comparing the forecasting ability of the two.
Why am I doing this? Well, it all comes from tonight’s weather trivia question. I asked “What is the Farmers Almanac predicting for the upcoming winter in the Alleghenies?” (answer was ‘close to average’) and Marty asked me which almanac I was referring to. I told him the ‘Farmers’ Almanac’ but he said that doesn’t count. People consider the ‘Old Farmers’ Almanac’ to be the authority because it’s been around longer.
