The Farmers Almanac never lies

Last year I got married on August 27. When I picked a day for the wedding, I consulted the Farmers Almanac months in advance. The almanac predicted heavy storms. Did anyone listen to me? No. I’m looking at you, Will.

For anyone who does not remember August 27, 2011, we had hurricane Irene. Oh, and an earthquake in DC, but nobody could have predicted that.

The Farmers Almanac predicts Oct 24-27 to be “fair at first, turning unsettled”, and Oct 28-31 to be “mostly fair”. I’m going to go ahead and assume that the infallible Alamac has guaranteed me a fair weather race day.

Trust the Almanac.
