Here we are at the start of a whole new decade. This year's "The Old Farmer's Almanac" predicts a winter of intense ups and downs in temperature.
Get ready for a wild ride on the Polar Coaster, some are saying.
But when did "The Old Farmer's Almanac" first come out and why is Ben Franklin on the cover?
Ben Franklin published "Poor Richard's Almanac" from 1732 to 1758 under the pseudonym of Richard Saunders.
There were other almanacs at the time, but Poor Richard's was a best seller.
So, when Robert B. Thomas started publishing "The Old Farmer's Almanac" in 1851, he added Ben Franklin's face to the cover of his book. It is still there today. Be sure to wish Ben a happy birthday on January 17th!
