Wow, how it has changed.

Love the Farmer's Almanac

I used to not be a big believer in the accuracy of this publication but over time I think that you will find just like I have that it really is very accurate. It is amazing how the weather can be predicted in advance with such accuracy!

When can I plant outdoors?

What will late April and early May in the Twin Cities look like?

Wedding Weather Prediction

Wedding Weather
