An article entitled Winter Blues: Get Used to Cold from the Texas A&M News & Information-Division of Marketing and Communications explains why we have had such cold weather lately and why we can expect more of the same.
Anyone who enjoys reading about the weather would be interested in perusing the Old Farmer’s Almanac 2010
, available at the library. This time-honored publication has weather predictions, the cycles of the moon for the year, articles about planting crops and living close to the land, and lots of entertaining, oddball facts. They also have a website now: www.almanac.com
