The 2012 Farmers’ Almanac calls it “Clime and Punishment,” meaning some parts of the United States will see a very frigid winter, while others can expect lots of rain and snow. The Northern Plains, parts of the Northern Rockies, and the western Great Lakes can expect a very cold winter, while the southern and eastern United States are expected to see above-average temperatures.
The publication predicts a very active storm track, which will bring heavier-than-normal precipitation – in whatever form – from the Southern Plains through Tennessee into Ohio, the Great Lakes, and the Northeast. Depending on what the temperatures are in your area, this weather forecast could mean extra time with salt on your roads, or a messy mudroom when you peel off your coveralls after coming back inside from the rain or mixed precipitation after chopping ice for the cattle.
US version of the Farmers' Almanac 2012 cover.The only areas of the country for which the 2012 Farmers’ Almanac predicts dryer than normal conditions are in the Southwest and the Southeast.
Winter temperatures will be 3 to 4 degrees C colder than normal, on average, with the coldest weather periods in early December, mid-January, early to mid-February, and early March.

Here in Virginia we just send the dog outside. If he comes back wet we know its raining.
I always loved reading the almanac but I don't use it to make plans.
