WEATHER FUN

Can spiders predict a sunny day? My mother-in-law told me that if you see spiders “hanging up their wash”(making webs) early on a summer morning, it’s a sure sign of a lovely day. See chimney smoke going straight up on a winter’s day? Another sign of nice weather. But, if you see ants building mounds , it’s a sign of rain. Same with birds roosting on electrical wires, another sign of coming rain. There are lots of weather folklore. Being observant to nature, can help you predict the day’s weather, without a weatherman. Check out lots of other weather lore at the following sites:

Don’t have a thermometer handy in the summer time. You can use a cricket’s chirp to get a pretty good idea as what the temperature will be for the day. Simply count how many chirps you hear in 15 seconds. Then, add the 37 to that number. It will give you a good idea of the temperature in Fahrenheit! By the way, this math formula is called the Dolbear’s Law named for the man who develop the equation in 1898.
