Old Farmer’s Almanac predicting rough winter for U.S. and Minnesota

“One could easily argue that the worst kind of winter is a cold and dry winter. The snow makes things interesting, albeit it a pain in the butt for travel, but winter can get very long when it’s cold and dry.

Alas, a cold and dry winter is precisely what The Old Farmer’s Almanac is predicting for Minnesota and the Upper Midwest.

“This coming winter could well be one of the longest and coldest that we’ve seen in years,” said Janice Stillman, editor of The Old Farmer’s Almanac. The annual seasonal outlook warns Americans to prepare for a “Season of Shivers.”

Last week, The Farmers’ Almanac predicted Minnesota’s 2021-22 winter to be “numb” with lots of shoveling. So both of the farmer-based almanacs are in line with thinking the upcoming winter is going to be frigid.”

While the Old Farmer’s Almanac has certainly been wrong from time to time when it comes to weather prediction, there are many instances where their forecasts have come true. Just in case, it might be a good idea to make sure your snowblower is in good working order before the first snowfall hits. You don’t want to get stuck shoveling your driveway and sidewalk after discovering your snowblower isn’t working properly!
