Red Sky at night....

Jamie Jones @ 11:19 AM

While surfing around the net looking for information that really doesn't matter ( Useless Fact: Astronauts get taller when they are in space.), I came across some rather interesting weather "folklore" as they say. The only problem was I had no idea what it meant...

If the goose honks high, fair weather; If the goose honks low, foul weather.
Beyond the apparent bad pun, has ANYONE even heard anything like this before?

Underground miners can smell rain coming.
Really you say? Can they also smell, say, each other coming after they have been working in the mines for 18 hours?

When parrots whistle, expect rain...
...And if you can tell the difference between a whistle and a chirp, you can be my weather man anyday.

I could go on and on all day, but has anyone even heard of these things? Anyone heard of anything even stranger, perhaps some old story passed on from Grandfather to Grandfather involving a tree trunk and long legged spiders?

And to send you off with, my personal favorite:
When the grass that catches the light of the month's first moon is wet, its raining
