215th Edition of Old Farmer's Almanac Predicts Harsh Winter for Many

Dublin, NH (AP) -- If you believe in the Old Farmer's Almanac, get a heavy coat.

The 215th Edition of the little yellow magazine with the hole in the corner calls for a colder and snowier than normal winter in much of the country, if a mild El Nino develops in the Pacific Ocean.

It also mentions the threat of a major hurricane in the northeast next year.

The Almanac's pizza personality profile is based on work by the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago. It has concluded that people who prefer one meat topping, for instance, are irritable, argumentative procrastinators.

It says natural leaders chose nontraditional toppings, such as pineapple, while the pizza with one veggie topping typically is ordered by people who make ideal parents.
