As mentioned in The 2011 Old Farmer's Almanac, long-time contributor Andrew E. Rothovius died on October 28, 2009. In appreciation, we reprise several of his articles for your enjoyment.
You can also find the full article, "What a Difference a Quarter Day Makes!" in the 2011 edition of this Almanac.
