This book has been around since 1792. I love how the book hasn't changed much and has kept its charm. My parents used to get the ALMANAC and I remember being a young kid and looking through it. This dandy little helper has everything you want to know, need to know, and didn't know you wanted to know. It's chock full of knowledge, useful facts, interesting data, and so much more.
Some of the features in this issue are:
There are 288 pages packed full of information. The pages are high quality paper, not 'newspaper' type which is a nice feature. There are plenty of colorful pictures. There are some ads sprinkled throughout but these don't take away from the almanac at all.
Weather-wise, all the 2020 tropical storm names are charted. There is a nifty wind chill chart. There's a listing of flowers that attract butterflies. And on and on and on....
I remember using the almanac for finding information for a school report way back in the day.
This is a great book to have around not only for finding out things you want to know, but seeing if weather forecasts are correct and maybe finding a new cookie to make and enjoy. Every home should have one of these almanacs!
The region-by-region weather prognostications are useful -- not always all that accurate, but reasonably so. Certainly the regions, based as they are on mountain ranges and bodies of water, make more sense than mere political distinctions, square states and so on. While this book evolves very slowly over the years, I notice one improvement and one change. The improvement: a shinier cover. The change: the drilled hole in the upper cover is gone. How, then, to hang it in that house back there?
By reading the text of the Old Farmer's Almanac you will become familiar with celestial events such as The Three Stages of Twilight before sunrise and after sunset. It is a very knowledge enhancing tool for people who like to be outdoors and want to know it.
Also the weather reports are about as accurate as projected weather you get on TV.
My favorite parts are the little tidbits in the beginning and the sunrise/sunsets for the year. I love the weather forecasting although I'm not positive of the accuracy. I think they have around 80% accuracy (which is pretty much the norm for meterologists I'd assume). Even my teens enjoyed looking at this. I'll be buying them yearly!
