Dodge Winter’s Predicted “Polar Coaster”

This fall, don’t bury your head in a pile of leaves and deny that Old Man Winter is headed our way. Instead, buckle up and prepare for a wild ride full of chills and thrills. The 2020 Farmer’s Almanac predicts a winter filled with so many ups and downs on the thermometer that it is already being dubbed a “polar coaster.”


“Our extended forecast is calling for yet another freezing, frigid, and frosty winter for two-thirds of the country,” Farmer’s Almanac Editor Peter Geiger said.



Should you heed the harsh prediction or hope that it all blows over?

The Farmer’s Almanac uses an age-old, top-secret formula developed way back when George Washington was the president that boasts 80% accuracy in predicting weather conditions. Modern-day meteorologists call that assertion malarkey, saying that one should look no further than the 10-day forecast for an accurate weather prediction.

Either way, a cold and snowy winter is almost certain for Minnesota, which makes for harsh living conditions, especially for older adults who live alone.
