Weather Lores

Over the centures there have been many phrases, tales, rhymes, poems etc written about the weather and for some people, they still hold a real element of truth.

Feel free to post any that you may have!

Here is a sample…

When windows won’t open,
And the salt clogs the shaker,
The weather will favour
The umbrella maker!


If the moon shows a silver shield,
Be not afraid to reap the field,
But if she rises haloed round,
Soon we’ll tread on deluged ground.


Evening red and morning gray
Two sure signs of one fine day,
Evening red and weather fine
Morning red, of rain’s a sign,
An evening gray and a morning red
Will send the shepherd wet to bed


I know ladies by the score
Whose hair foretells the storm..
Long before it begins to pour
Their curls take a drooping form!


When the glass falls low,
Prepare for a blow;
When it rises high,
Let all your kites fly.


Finally here is one for weather forecasters!

And in the dying embers
These are my main regrets,
When I’m right no one remembers
When I’m wrong no one forgets.

” When the dew is in the grass, Rain will never come to pass.
When grass is dry at morning light, Look for rain before the night.
