Good News! Iguanas Will Not Be Falling From Trees This Winter

Whew! I was a bit worried. Frozen iguanas obeying Newton’s Universal Law of Gravitation can reach painful speeds vis a vis a shot to the noggin’

Good news, winter haters: After record snowfall in the mid-Atlantic and unusually cold weather down South, the Farmers’ Almanac is predicting a “kinder and gentler” winter.

After eyeing the skies, tidal action and sunspots, the folks at the 194-year-old publication say in their 2011 edition going on sale Monday that it’ll be cold but nothing like last winter, when 49 states saw snow and it got so cold in Florida that iguanas fell out of trees.

“Overall, it looks like it’s going to be a kinder and gentler winter, especially in the areas that had a rough winter last year,” said managing editor Sandi Duncan.

They do make good eating, though. Buuuuuuuut,

It’ll still be colder than normal for much of the country, the almanac says, and New England will get a “cold slap in the face” after missing last winter’s misery. Finally, residents of the upper Midwest and Great Lakes are expected to get the piles of snow that’ll be lacking elsewhere.

Now we’ll have to see what The Old Farmer’s Almanac has to say on September 7th.

  1. John Ryan says:

    TEach when DC got record heavy snowfall last year were the temps extremely low ? Or was it more unusually because of the amount to precipitation ? Did DC have an unusually COLD winter last year ? Where do you think this year will chart in terms of hotness ?

  2. Otter says:

    ‘lil LIAR knows ZERO about the temps at which snow actually falls.

  3. Maggie Mama says:

    For one day last winter, I believe, ALL 50 states has some snow falling or already on the ground.

  4. And that matters why, John? Was the winter not unusually cold and snowy?

    And iguanas, don’t forget the iguanas, Maggie šŸ™‚
