Weather proverbs

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.


Wet May

Dry July


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?

Don't shovel snow in the winter won't shovel grain the next fall.
