Friday Frolics

Happy first Friday of fall 2013. Hope the weather is kind to you today, and you enjoy this new season.

To help start the weekend off, here are some fun Friday weather quotes:

When the stars begin to huddle the earth will soon begin to puddle.

Much rain in October, much wind in December.

Yellow streaks in sunset sky, wind and daylong rain are nigh.

Ants marching in a line, rather than meandering, means a hard winter is on its way.

Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain.

Whether the weather be fine, Whether the weather be cold, Whether the weather be hot, We will weather the weather, Whatever the weather, Whether we like it or not.

Debby – people say our accuracy rate is 80-85%

As a kid, I heard: Red at night, Sailor’s Delight. Gray in the morning, Sailor’s take warning. My Dad always said, when asked “Do you think it will rain?” answered – if it doesn’t, it’s going to be a long dry spell. :-)

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
