Want To Be A Weather Guru...?
Well, these tips probably won't make you a guru, but they might just help you to be a little bit more aware of what may be right around the corner!
I'm thinking that anything that helps is always welcome! After all, information can be our most valuable tool, no matter what we are doing.
This collection of signs from nature came from the Old Farmer's Almanac, and has probably been gathered from stories and tips that the old timers, farmers, ranchers, and all folks living in the country have passed down over the years! Lots of common sense, lots of old wives tales, and lots of home remedies have been totally ignored up until recent years...when they were finally recognized to contain a wealth of information!
Pay attention, now...there will be a test later!
• Cats remaining indoors, devoid of vivacity, forecast wet or windy weather.
• Owls hooting and screeching during bad weather foretell fine weather near at hand.
• Sheep run to and fro, jump from the ground, and fight before a change of weather.
• Many flowers close their petals as rain approaches, opening them again after rain.
• Plenty of acorns indicates a severe winter ahead. Thin onion skins mean a mild winter.
This is just a few of oh, so many tips from our past that we really should pay more attention to, don't you think? Of course, that's just my opinion...but since I've proven to you many times how wise I am, why would you not listen? How do you know I'm wise? That's an easy one...I read the Almanac, don't I?
