Just wrote a bit about a favorite book, Weather Proverbs (full story). Always kind of interesting to delve into the old-timey wisdom of what the natural world might be telling us about the weather. Some long-range sayings include:
There can never be too much rain before midsummer.
Don't plant your corn until the oak leaf is as big as a squirrels ear.
Calm weather in June sets corn in tune.
Early insects, early spring, good crops.
Fall bugs begin to chirp six weeks before a frost.
Some truth to all of these old saws, according to author Dr. George Freier. Anybody have one to add?
