Concord, N.H. • The other jury is in: A second periodical used for everything from predicting the weather to helping people lose weight agrees that this winter's shaping up to be cold and snowy.
The Dublin, N.H.-based Old Farmer's Almanac which, at 222, is believed to be the oldest continuously published periodical in North America, is predicting that a drop in solar activity and a change in ocean patterns point to colder-than-average temperatures and higher-than-average snowfall totals.
The 2014 edition officially comes out Tuesday.
Last month, the Maine-based Farmer's Almanac, said much the same. The younger cousin has been published for a mere 197 years.
