We love winter in Tennessee. That’s why we have five extra ones. But with a winter weather approaching, we’re wondering what’s in store. Enter: the Old Farmer’s Almanac.

The Old Farmer’s Almanac — published continuously since 1792 — is predicting a shift to bitter cold this winter season, with Nashville and most of the state set for a cold + snowy wintertide. Now we’re curious… How accurate is the oldest published periodical for Nashville snowfall?

Take a look at the last three winters and decide for yourself if the Almanac holds water (or other precipitation).
