The Almanac has historically
The Almanac has historically been very accurate with weather predictions. But to place blame on the staff for the lack of rain is crazy and I personally feel no apologies are necessary. The Almanac offers weather PREDICTIONS. Information is gathered from multiple sources and then what is offered is (let's face it) and educated guess. Not a certainty, but a possibility. Please continue with what I consider to be excellent predictions. California is at this moment in the midst of a great storm, so I don't think your Jan-Feb precipitation prediction was wrong, just a few weeks late!
