This year’s Almanack features descriptions of the 48 seasons of the year in nature, with emphasis on the floral and faunal cycles. A calendar of blooming plants complements these narratives and facilitates following the progress of the landscape as it changes with the position of the sun. Sections on the major planets, the stars and the shooting stars add dimension to the seasonal essays, Monthly weather forecasts emphasize the predictable passage of high–pressure systems across the United States, and include consideration of lunar influence on these fronts. The Seasonal Affective Disorder Index, which measures the effects of cloud cover, weather, the day’s length and the phase of the moon on S.A.D., offers a numerical context for following the influence of these factors on human emotions.
