There are many great tips and informative facts in this book. The Almanac is great in that way. Other than great detail for Boston and New England, for which this book is geared, there are merely one-page WEATHER sections for the other parts of the U.S.(pages 192 to 208 only), but most of the book is geared for Boston & New England. This book is also like any magazine.... crammed full of advertisements. This book has 288 pages.
And last year when I could buy it for my Kindle. Amazing. This year was just as great.
The only complaint I have is unlike last year all the weather diagrams are really really small.
And they will not enlarge. I can not read the rainfall diagram at all.
They are about 1/4 the size of last years. Please fix that folks. I just started reading.
So I do not know about the rest of it.
But I will still enjoy my almanac.......but only 4 stars instead of 5.
I will say that the Almanac is not very intuitively organized, but I actually think that's part of the fun of it -- digging around and opening to random pages and seeing what you find. If you're looking for a quirky little book of diversions, you can't go wrong with this old favorite.
This is a quirky work. There all sort of subjects covered, such as astrology, astronomy, food, "amusement," calendar, and so on.
But what is always special is the weather forecast. I am in Region 3. In November, temperatures are predicted as below average as is precipitation. December? Below average in temperature and precipitation. January? A snowstorm is predicted between the 6th and 15th.
Oddities. An article about the number of penalties in hockey; overweight pets; frosts and growing seasons.
Wow, first time reading this almanac and the internet has basically replaced this series.
I "read" this on an airplane, noticed all the ads for older people, noticed I could have just wikipedia searched everything, then I left it on the plane because I thought carrying it around would be a hassle.
Although I admit some of the info in the book is really a bit out there... that's why I like it.
