I haven’t seen a copy myself, but I’ve heard the Farmers’ Almanac is predicting a doozy of a winter for 2019-2020. And today was its debut. I ventured forth to meet friends for coffee and to compare notes on the roads we all took to get there.
The snow was beautiful, but the roads were ugly icy. At retirement age, we all find the snow less to our liking than when we were young. With this in mind, I’m forsaking the Farmers’ Almanac altogether and returning to books about snow that I read to my own children years ago.
There was The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats, Anna’s Wish by Bruno Hachler, Blizzard by John Rocco, and several books by different authors all sharing the title Snow. And, of course, there’s Frosty the Snowman.
I’m hoping these books are an antidote to almanac predictions.
