Gauntlets Thrown -- Mike Augustyniak From WCCO-CBS Minnesota Challenges The Old Farmer's Almanac

Though the title here is a little on the dramatic side, any challenge there was to the Old Farmer's Almanac was done in good fun. Actually, it is probably more accurate to say that there really wasn't a challenge, but more of a discussion.

The discussion took place on WCCO-CBS Minnesota segment of the Mid-Morning show. Several of their on-air personalities were, including the station's director of meteorology, Mike Augustyniak (@MikeAugustyniak), were talking about the release of this years Old Farmer's Almanac and how it stacks up against more modern meteorology.

As one can see, any kind of ribbing towards the Old Farmer's Almanac was done in good fun, with Augustyniak even saying that he has gone back and forth with the publisher of the almanac on social media. But even with the good-natured smack-talking aside, local and national meteorology outlets versus the almanac is a common discussion with many people, these folks just happened to be able to have their fun on camera.

In the end, the only way to see who will be more accurate is to wait until happens and look out the window. Only then can any person know which prediction was correct. However, being that the Old Farmer's Almanac is published by Yankee Publsishing, Inc. out of Dublin, NH, making it kind of local to Ski Rex Media, I'll go with the home team.
