Is Your Furnace Ready for a Freezing, Frigid and Frosty Winter?

Farmers' Almanac mapThe 2019-2020 Farmers’ Almanac extended forecast is calling for another freezing, frigid, and frosty winter for two-thirds of the country.

It’s predicting that the worst of  the bitterly cold winter conditions will affect areas east of the Rockies all the way to the Appalachians and spring will be slow to start with winter lingering across the Midwest, Great Lakes, Northeast and New England.

If you are interested in some of the time proven methods the Farmers’ Almanac uses to come to their prognostications go to 20 Signs of a Snowy Winter.
