Have you ever noticed how often we look to the skies and make weather predictions based on the clouds? A uniform grey sky is one thing, but darker cloud formations always signal the impending onset of predictions (and storms.)
Some of it comes from having lived long enough in a place to have observed a thing or two. Observing and predicting, however, don’t always come together. I used to see C.C. Banks outside his store in Liberty watching the sky intently. One day in particular I remember him looking at clouds forming in the East that you could see looking down Main St. and knowing of his sky watching habit I innocently asked him if he thought we’d have rain. “I’ll let you know when it’s over” was his only reply.
There is some universal agreement about certain signs and their meaning that transcends both state lines and national borders. Here’s a few of them.
My favorite weather comment, however, is this one –
“It looks like we’re gonna have some weather.”
Now I ask you, don’t we always?
