I do love that as Southerners we change pronunciation in order to emphasize a point. I was sending a text recently and realized that I didn't type the phrase that I would have said in person. "He was torn up." in other words, he was upset. In person, it would have been "he was toe up." I graduated from an actual university, but I will let you know that my baby was toe up when I ate the grape she stuck in my mouth. Guess I was supposed to just hold the grape there until she was ready for it. Anyway, my friend had been toe up because the Farmer's Almanac had changed. Really, Farmer's Almanac, you do not serve a crowd that appreciates a change in year long weather prediction. Just tell us when to plant tomatoes like you always do. Change not necessary.
