he may not be the most precise forecaster we have known
but he has a book out on traditional weather signs.
some of the quotes from his book that i am looking forward to seeing are
"The robin flies near the house and into the barn when snow is forthcoming but when she flies in on the open kitchen half door a heavy fall of snow is fast approaching"
"In Autumn when a badger is seen making his sett and leaves and branches are strewn at its opening, an early winter is to be expected"
"On Winter evenings when the fox is heard crying in the distance a heavy fall of snow is forthcoming"
" When the seagull comes ashore or the curlew is heard screeching at night, are all signs of a storm on its way"
" If snow comes around the end of november or beginning of December then chances are not good for a white christmas"
"In Winter white clouds indicated that snow was on the way"
