Red sky at dawn,
Sailers be warned.
Red sky at night,
Grandma used to teach me signs of weather in the sky. She could tell the weather better than the forecaster could.
If there is enough blue sky to make a Dutchman's breeches, it will clear.
So I always wondered, just how big was a Dutchman?
If the clouds look like horse tails,
Ran in 24 hrs.
If the maples and poplar leaves turn their backs to the wind,
head for shelter.
Grandma was almost always right. I should have listened better as a child.
