What a beautiful Fall day we've had here in our little neck of the woods.. The wind has blown cool and crisp with the skies clear and blue.. We're in a Frost Advisory tonight, according to the local weathermen...The wind has now layed and as my mama used to say, "There will be Frost on the pumpkins."
Now Daddy was a different story, he was a genuine, down to earth Weather Forecaster.. I do believe these modern day forecasters could've took some lessons from him..He had his own way and his way seemed to work out fine when it came to the weather..Here's a few of his Weather Forecasts that I remember so well.
When there's a red Sunset, it means there'll be bad weather in three days.
When the cattle are grazing at night there will be bad weather. When they're grazing in the daytime, it's going to be pretty weather.
If it clouds up over a frost, bad weather is on its way..
In the summer when a bad storm came up, he could tell which direction it was going. Such as, "That one is following the River", etc.
When a Turtle Dove ( also known as Rain Owl ), coos in the daytime, Rain is on it's way.
These are just a few of his Weather Forecasts, there will be more to come later..
I guess he just had a knack for Weather Forecasting.. How about you all? Do you have any Forecasts you could share? Gotta go get my Houseplants in, Frost is on its way..Sure wish Daddy was here, he would know for sure..He'd either wear his overcoat in the house or Not.. If he had it on, I'd be grabbing those house plants in a hurry.. You all take care and watch out for Frost.. October's on its way..Blessings, Susie
