The chart information in My Local Almanac is in every Old Farmer's Almanac but the numbers are national, which means approximate for your location. To get specific, accurate information for your location you have to perform a calculation. The formula is also in every Almanac and it is not too hard, but it can feel a little like homework. Our My Local Almanac product does the calculations for you!
Important: This product observes daylight savings time. If you live in an area that doesn't observe daylight savings time, such as Arizona or parts of Indiana, then this product will be inaccurate and it is not recommended.
I appreciate the local times for sun and moon events, and tides!
Thank you for offering this option. I have purchased the Farmers Almanac every year since I can remember. My father always had one be his chair. He wasn't a farmer but thought he could grow anything in our Western NY garden. Grateful you still publish both for us with green thumbs!
This is supposed to be LOCAL, geared to Tucson AZ zipcode 85749. Why doesn't it take into account that Arizona - including this zipcode - does NOT go to Daylight Saving Time? Not very good for about 8 months of the year. Very dissatisfied.
I utilized my Farmers Almanac and did not make the necessary adjustments for my time zone (Central). I am quite pleased. Still learning my way around the Almanac and enjoying myself.
It was a good idea on the part of those who work on the "Old Farmer's Almanac" to offer the "My Almanac" publication.
The My Local Almanac is very helpful in finding local sunrise and sunset times, as well as moon rise and set times, along with the moon's age on any given date. I find the sunrise/sunset times very useful in setting mechanical timers for outdoor lights at our church. The tide tables are only useful if you live near a body of water with significant tides.
This is a great great product. For years I carried a note card with conversion from Boston to my area. Then you published the Southern Edition. I could use it anywhere in Ga and not be off more than minutes anywhere in GA. You quit the Southern Edition. Buttttt the new edition by zip code is even BETTER! I order it, it appears in minutes and I print it. Thank you! I still purchase the Boston edition but use the zip code version most. Been using the Almanac for over 50 years, Thank you. Earl R.

How do I retrieve "My Local Almanc" for zip 18472 my order number is 437981.
Useful and accurate
Has all the pertinent info, with the time adjustments already figured in for your specific locale! Very Handy Indeed!
Excellent !!! *****
For decades I used the New England Edition and had to make conversions to my location. A pain but it worked. Then The Southern Edition appeared wit Atlanta, Ga (my home) as the reference point. It was accurate to within 5 minutes anywhere in the state. When the Southern Edition was no longer published I discovered the local edition to my zip code. It is great and I purchase the New England edition to make conversions anywhere else I need. Love the local edition and you can not beat the low price of $3.95. Thanks
Disappointing I thought it would have more information and also be web based
A few years back, I could purchase a digital download of just the moon information for the entire year. It was only a page or two, but perfect for my needs. I could cut and glue them into my pocket calendars easily, very handy for making a dental appointment or scheduling other tasks where the moon's phase and sign should be taken into account. Now it takes me hours to cut out the columns I want and fit them into my calendar. Otherwise, this is a good resource and worth the $3.95.
This information is not sent over Local media any longer. Local sunrise/sunset, moonrise/moonset and how long we get sunlight is important info for many people as are times of high tide. Moon phase and age are important to farmers and star gazers. This product is very valuable.
love this addition- use it as a quick reference ,
I like your almanac but it is missing the daily solar elevation. Also whoever maintains your website has not changed the year on your catalog page. I emailed and asked about the date as I did not want the wrong year received no reply. Summary: almanac good customer service stinks.
My order was great, just what I was looking for!
