Many interesting weather proverbs are based on simple, do-it-yourself observations. My favorite is "Red Sky at Night, Sailors Delight; Red Sky in Morning, Sailors Take Warning." When I see a red tinted early sky, I always proceed with caution; there are often storms ahead! Any other weather watcher favorites?
Well, they always say if in a drought kill a black snake and throw it over a fence rail and a storm will come. My brother swears he did it once and a storm cloud immediately rolled in and drenched the area.
Every time the weather person says we are in a drought I think about that.
