8 Weather Lore Sayings You May Not Know

I found this at the Farmers' Almanac
1. If it thunders on All Fool's Day, it brings good crops of corn and hay.

2. A cold May and a windy April, a full barn.
3. The louder the frog, the more the rain.
4. If the oak is out before the ash then we are in for a splash, But if the ash is out before the oak we are in for a soak.
5. March'll search ye, April try ye; May'll tell, whether live or die ye.
6. Rain before seven, fine before eleven.
7. Sounds traveling far and wide, A rainy day will betide.
8. A cow with its tail to the west, makes weather the best; A cow with its tail to the east, makes weather the least.

And then the one we all know:
April Showers Make May flowers.

  1. Cows know! Maybe I should get one to add to my weather instruments at the cabin. At least it would give milk, cream, butter and cheese between storms. All my instruments give is a container of rain water to empty. LOL - Margy
