The Farmers’ Almanac , known for its long-range weather predictions, presented in a format heavy on human interest features and home-spun humor, has been published continuously since 1818.  It is quite amazing that in an age where print magazines seem to be going the way of the buggy whip, as recently as September 2012 the Weather Channel noted that the Farmer’s Almanac print edition enjoys a circulation number in the neighborhood of 3.1 million copies.  The publication’s exact method for making its prognostications are proprietary, but they do rely – at least in part, these days – on weather satellites.  In March of 2010 the Farmers’ Almanac made note of the 50th anniversary of the first weather satellite.  Another satellite related reference will be included in the 2014 edition – the publication has contacted Sputnikfest organizers of to say they will be featuring the festival in the 2014 edition, set to be released in August of this year.  Is that cool or what?  Might not quite be like making the cover of the Rolling Stone – but around these parts, the Farmers’ Almanac is a pretty big deal.  With the 2014 edition set to hit the newsstands just before the 2013 edition of Sputnikfest – the timing couldn’t be better.   Planet Terry
