    Are you one that follows the Farmers Almanac on Weather, Gardening, Signs and etc. Your thoughts. I purchased and placed an Almanac on the dash of my car one year and checked it each day for weather and was amazed at its accuracy.

    I use it as a rough indicator of fishing times,, but,, also, use the local barometric pressure!!

    Been using it ever since my Grandpap taught me about it. He swore by it for planting and gardening. Didn't matter what the weatherman said, it was what the Almanac said. i use it for overall fishing forecast.

    I use it for planting every year and for trimming my trees and shrubs back.I look at the fish and game tables but don't realy plan around them.I have found the almanac to be more acurate than Al Gore when it comes to weather.:big_smile:

    Its time to get the 2010 Almanac and start paying attention to it. News just said there is several waves of bad weather headed across the country. I hate this bad weather.

    Mom and Dad always used them. My grand parents used by them. I never really paid much attention to them myself.

    I just wet my finger and stick it in the air Mic. Long time family of farmers I come from and they used it religiously. Gotta go look up the best time to cut some hogs.

    The weather ain't gonna be good this year Mic. My almanac says so too. My knees also tell me that. Not good. Not good.
