    I like the “Rope” method of weather forecasting.

    Let a short piece of rope dangle from your hand outside…

    1. If it gets wet, it is raining.

    2. If it gets white, it is snowing.

    3. If it is sideways, it is windy.

    4. If you can’t see it, it is nighttime (technically not a weather thing, but helpful nonetheless).

    “high humidity… tends to precede heavy rain.”

    Unless you’re in Texas… then it’s always humid, all the time. :-/

      I dunno, it can get really dry out here in Granite Shoals. We’re talking strength-sapping mouth-cottoning pour-on-the-lip-balm-and-lotion kind of dry. And it’s next to a lake, even!

    Hmm…I question the validity of some of these, but – overall – I think it’s pretty accurate. Ya know, if you’re into old wives’ tales and all.
