If your kids don't have their winter coats and boots handy in the closet yet, you're going want to to make hitting up your favorite store a priority. Make sure you buy several because according to The Old Farmer's Almanac, that's pretty much all you're going to be seeing them wear this winter.
Yup, that trusty Old Farmer's Almanac is predicting a winter "that never ends" and the thought is literally sending chills down our spines.
Founded in 1792, The Old Farmer's Almanac was originally created to help farmers know what weather might impact the crop-growing season ahead. Ya know...before we all had iPhones to turn to? As much as weather apps are being uses nowadays, The Old Farmer's Almanac is still alive and well and a resource that people still turn to.
Almanac.com released a press release with details information about the 2019-2020 weather situation and it's kinda scaring us.
Why? You ask. Well, some pretty terrifying language was used to describe the weather that we're about to come in contact with. They used terms like "7 major snowstorms predicted” and “bone-chilling cold.” If that doesn't worry you, they even questioned this being "the winter that never ends?” So ya...lots of snow and ice ahead.
And this weather isn't just going to be hitting areas that experience regular snowy winters. Nope. Areas in the country that don't experience snow will have lots of heavy rains and sleet. For areas that regularly see snow in the winter months, we'll be seeing lots and lots of it.
But then why is it being called "the winter that never ends?" Glad you asked. Basically, don't even think about putting your favorite parka away until the summer months, as these frigid temperatures can last well into the spring.
“This could feel like the never-ending winter, particularly in the Midwest and east to the Ohio Valley and Appalachians, where wintery weather will last well into March and even through the first days of spring,” Almanac editor Janice Stillman said in the release.
They are citing the main cause for this horrific weather to be climate change, which you probably could have guess already. Guess it's time to plan a beach trip?
