If nothing else, 2020 has been unique in many ways. I must say I am not excited that we are looking at fall and winter information, but…here we are.

It is time for the Farmers’ Almanac (the one with the green and orange cover from Lewiston) to make their predictions for the fall of 2020 and winter of 2020-2021.  

So, what are we in for? According to FarmersAlmanac.com, we are looking at cold and snowy for the northeast. Last winter, as winters go, was not to be for me. I don’t like the cold, but dealing with the snow is a pain in the butt. Last year it was not much of an issue. I guess not so much this winter.

It is not just the northeast; when you look at the whole United States map from the Farmers’ Almanac, we are ALL in for it. I see lots of cold and wintery terms used. The west coast seems to get it a little easier.










But we have some time before winter, what are the fall predictions? According to the Farmers’ Almanac, it will nice as we roll into fall and then turn stormy. Fall officially starts Tuesday, September 22, 2020, at 9:21 a.m. EDT…just for the record.


We are Mainers. We are a hardy lot…even someone like me who really is no big fan of winter. I know what to do and how to do it. I know to make sure I have a snow broom and ice scraper in my car. I know that value of studded snow tires. I know it will not last forever, and spring and summer will return. 


For now, I will continue to enjoy each and every drop of the summer weather and lovely days of fall and know…winter is coming.
