Wow! Were you ever so wrong in Canada's forecast this summer!!! like very wrong! Atlantic Canada was not "cool" it was HOT, not just hot but also VERY DRY! hardly any rain! especially in Nova Scotia.
BC was Very dry and hot in June & July. was also hot and dry in the prairies last 2 months.
So is summer still on it's way or??????? I'm in Alberta (and a week into July) and so far we've had 4-5 decent days since the snow melted, half of which were accompanied by 40kmph winds. Other than that we have had rain EVERY day. It's grey skies right now with rain coming at 4pm. The forecast says rain for the next 4 days. That will officially be 4 straight weeks of rain without stopping. This is just stupid.
o steve I was looking for a September out look here in pa for some relief n some rain ..its beem close 100 daily ..n no rain ....of love cooler weather
You were so correct about last summer in region 1, NW Massachusetts. It was so wet, my carrots rotted in the ground, many other plants died or the vegetables rotted, even in raised beds, and I had such an onslaught of slugs. I would pick off a couple hundred a day, but they also liked eating the vegetables, especially broccoli family and squash. I hope you are wrong about this summer also being wetter!! Tried to add photos of my rotting carrots, squash and slugs, but they won't show here.
I'm looking at the map above. Where do you people get off thinking that it's going to be cool and dry in Georgia?
Well, so far, as of July 8th 2021, NW Ohio has been hot very muggy, sticky, with very high humidiy and lots of rain. Quite uncomfortable to say the leat, May was high humidity, so was June. Never seems to be a happy medium.
As much of a fan of the Almanac as I am, I really hope you end up being wrong about a "major hurricane strike" from South Carolina to New England in early-mid August. I live on Long Island (NY) and we were slammed by Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Not looking forward to another such situation (or worse). Especially in the summer heat and humidity.
Dear Old Farmer's Almanac. Would you please place a store in my small home town of Batesburg, South Carolina. Ridge Spring South Carolina, Saluda, South Carolina (where I went to school,) Edgefield, South Carolina, Orangeburg, South Carolina, Aiken, South Carolina, Greenwood, South Carolina, West Columbia, South Carolina, Camden, South Carolina and Columbia, South Carolina. I believe we could use a store (actual brick and mortar store--to go along with the internet.) Not just a section IN a store, sirs. Although that is present in our Batesburg-Leesville hometown Ace Hardware store--Bob's Ace Hardware, but I would like an actual Old Farmer's Almanac store in town.
I began reading Old Farmer's Almanac again, that I purchased at Books-A-Million, because I did not have any clocks and needed to know the time. You see, gentlemen, I have long wanted a sun-dial in my yard, but I don't really know how to read one. I still want want though! I figured that I could learn how to use my "real" sundial--then, if I didn't have a watch, I could still know the time of day. I remembered high school where I was taught from The Old Farmer's Almanac about many things concerning weather and time. I also remember my Granddaddy's Old Farmer's Almanac and our family's (extended family) conversations while reading The Old Farmer's Almanac. My granddaddy raised peanuts, cashews, and cherry trees! He also raised other vegetables, but I was really, really young and I don't remember everthing that he raised. But I loved talking to my granddaddy and watching the older grandchildren talk about grandaddy's peanuts, etc. Yes, I was listening! Even as a child!
Later, I learned about The Old Farmer's Almanac in school. I believe it was history class; so, therefore, I also learned about "Poor Richard's Almanac, and others." These recollections helped me to decide to try to learn how to tell time from The Old Farmer's Almanac, the weather, AND gardening!!! You see, I'm excited about my new house and I want to raise all sorts of vegetables AND fruit trees. As long as my yard and various South Carolina "zones" will permit good growth. I'll just have to experiment along with the new information that I receive and information that I believe I can remember from YEARS ago! I'll just start with water as I have started in my gardening experiences before--which were usually just a few flower pots, but I was an aspiring home owner and farmer. I never really told many people about my desire to own a farm though--but, now I'm beginning to do just that. One person from the USDA even suggested that I have a much larger farm than one with just a few chickens, ducks, geese, cats, dogs, a jersey cow, an iguana, a pond, and at least two birds. Believe me sirs, that's not all. Which, sirs, you bringinging a new brick and mortar Old Farmer's Almanac Store to small towns is where you come in-- I do hope!!
In my business plans sirs, I have chosen with delight to focus on small towns across the country and the world--later, to do business in--establishing "something to do in a small town!" You see sirs, as much as I love my home. Sometimes, I get bored! Or, I get so inspired in my home town with a new idea, that I think that my small town may not be big enough to acommodate such ideas--at least sirs, I use to think that way. I no longer think that way. Sometimes, you just have to give things a try--that's what the frontiersmen used to do that I used to study about with fascination; how they built houses with axes; traveled clear across America with an ax, a map, and some hope. Also, sirs some gumption! Maybe, they didn't always have a lot of money or banks either--just a whole lot of land to be cleared that they probably heard about from someone else who wanted to make new discoveries with the will to risk something "new." That sirs, experiencing something new, is what I'm doing now and yes, sirs, in a small town. I have built my business plan around small towns and back to basics planning--right down to the materials I use. A pen and some notebook paper or lineless paper. It's not fancy--but my plans for Batesburg-Leesville, my small hometown and its function is fancy. Something I hope a whole lot of people will like, look forward to, and be willing to travel across the world to see; so, I hope you will consider coming to Batesburg-Leesville with a new "Old Farmer's Almanac Store and all that you have to bring from your almanac--please consider hardily those other towns as well. Thank you for your consideration, gentlemen. I look forward to seeing you and your store soon for some great shopping!
Hello Keisha, well I have to know did you ever get a Old Farmer's Almanac Store in or around your parts of the country? I enjoyed reading your comments and wondered how you are faring.
I love so much about Farmer's Almanac, but the weather predictions are not among them. It is July 18, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and a grim, cloudy, soon-to-be-rainy day it is. Like nearly every day this summer. I have a big sweater on, and slippers, because it's cold. We've opened our windows in the house only a handful of times this "summer." I don't know if we've broken any low temp records, but it's been cold, rainy, and awful. I like your version better, but that ain't here.
