On New Year's my family and friends decided to try their hands at making an Onion Calendar. I've never heard of such a thing before. But after Googling and researching, we thought we'd see if our Onion calendar would predict the rainy/snowy/wet months in South Dakota for 2012.
They got an onion from a cousin's garden (so it's locally grown) and sliced it into 12 cups. After sprinkling each with salt and waiting a couple of hours, it looks like NE South Dakota will be wet in January, May, and December 2012.
Nate has major doubts on our very scientific research, so we'll see how the year turns out! (trust me, if this is right you'll hear about it!)
