I recently read an article in Yahoo News in which a geological scientist explains that the number of earthquakes we recently experienced is quite normal, and there is nothing to fear. In his article he tells us the average number of 6, 7 and 8 magnitude earthquakes each year, and explains that so far, during this year, we are still within those averages.

The farmer’s Almanac is a annually published book which tries to predict the weather for each year and season. It’s history goes back almost 200 years to 1818 when it was first published. The Farmer’s Almanac uses moon phases, astrology, and tidal phases to predict the weather this year, but it’s methodology is highly secretive. Here are some videos about the 2010 winter:
