The old almanacs are kinda hard to read until you understand how they're organized. For example, the weather forecast is indicated in italics (see above where I've underlined the different forecasts with different colors.) They usually had a poem for each month and then a story or two on the side. I thought it was interesting that they noted George Washington's birthday on the 22nd, so I checked the 2014 Almanac and it's there as well. And, while there are other famous people's births referenced on their respective dates, Washington's is the only President's birth that is still referenced in the Almanac. I wonder if that's a nod to the history of the Almanac? Interesting, huh?
