talking about the recent weather on another thread got me to wondering: what kinds of folk, or old-time, weather predictors/indicators have you ever heard of? have you ever seen them actually prove true? :d
i can't remember where i heard it, (i think from some local old-timer, maybe) that if you see a hornet's nest built close to the ground, it will be an early, hard, winter.
year before last, when we had ice and snow for 3 weeks in early to mid december, my husband and i had cut a hornet's nest from a rhododendron branch. it was about 6 feet off the ground. this year, there was one right across the little road in front of our houwe, on the ground!
yesterday we had a dusting of snow, and temps in the 20's.
ust wondering what kinds of things you all have seen and heard about this topic...
