Not by Fire but by Ice

This winter will be much colder than normal,
Farmers' Almanac warns


28 Aug 06 - After one of the warmest winters on record, this coming 
winter will be much colder than normal from coast to coast, the Farmer’s 
Almanac predicts.

It will be frigid from the Gulf Coast all the way up the East Coast, warns 
the almanac's reclusive forecaster, Caleb Weatherbee. And it will be 
especially nippy on the Northern Plains - up to 20 degrees below 
seasonal norms in much of Montana, the Dakotas and part of Wyoming.

And, says Weatherbee, it'll be especially snowy across the nation's mid-
section, much of the Pacific Northwest, the mountains of the Southwest 
and parts of eastern New England.

Weatherbee makes his forecasts two years in advance using a secret 
formula based on sunspots, the position of the planets and the tidal action 
of the moon.
