The Farmer’s Almanac predicts:

LEWISTON, Maine – Americans, you might want to check on their sweaters and shovels — the Farmers’ Almanac is predicting a cold winter for many of you.

The venerable almanac’s 2010 edition, which goes on sale Tuesday, says numbing cold will predominate in the country’s midsection, from the Rocky Mountains in the West to the Appalachians in the East.

For most of Minnesota and Wisconsin, the almanac predicts “bitterly cold and dry” weather. In the Dakotas and the Red River Valley region of Minnesota, “very cold and snowy” weather is expected.

Managing Editor Sandi Duncan says it’s going to be an “ice cold sandwich.”

“We feel the middle part of the country’s really going to be cold — very, very cold, very, very frigid, with a lot of snow,” she said. “On the East and West coasts, it’s going to be a little milder. Not to say it’s going to be a mild short winter, but it’ll be milder compared to the middle of the country.”

    I will have a bone to pick with Al Gore if the almanac predictions are truer than his global warming theories. Especially as a nurse who is going to have to deal with those patients dealing with the cold and as a nurse who moved to Omaha, having to acclimate to the nursing lifestyle of the winter.
