It reminded me of a saying my father quotes sometimes. Our family has lived by the ocean for many, many generations and most of my ancestors have been sailors of one kind of another. Here is the saying that was passed down:

So, to all of you-
How do you predict the weather? If you have a fun saying, magickal means, or nature tip- feel free to share it!
