2014 Super Bowl Likely to be "Biting Cold" and a "Storm Bowl" According to the Farmer's Almanac

By Jason Lisk

The Farmer’s Almanac is predicting a “biting cold” winter and a snowstorm to hit the Northeast during the week of the Super Bowl that will be played outdoors in the Meadowlands.

“We’re using a very strong four-letter word to describe this winter, which is C-O-L-D. It’s going to be very cold,” said managing editor Sandi Duncan, thus answering the question of what happened to the Hogan Family star. We obviously have different interpretations of what constitutes a very strong four-letter word. Gee Whiz.

“It really looks like the Super Bowl may be the Storm Bowl,” adds Duncan.

We should probably view this with as much skepticism as any preseason prognostication of who will be playing in that game. The article notes that the Almanac is accurate 80% of the time, according to, well, the Almanac. Way to do some independent research. My quick search suggests there is plenty of skepticism about these long term weather forecasts using secret sauce.
