|There's a favourite saying in Nova Scotia is "If you don't like the weather wait a minute, it's bound to change|
Red Sky at night/
Red Sky in the Morning/
Sailors take warning.
Fog on the hill/
Water for the mill/
Fog in the hollow/
Fine weather to follow
Catchy drawer and sticky door,
Coming rain will pour and pour.
When the rooster goes crowing to bed, he will rise with a watery head
When the leaves of trees turn over,
Hold your hat and expect a shower.
When leaves show their undersides, be very sure that rain betides.
When spiders weave their webs by Noon, fine weather is coming soon.
A veering wind will clear the sky,
A backing wind says storms are nigh.
When spiders webs in air do fly,
The spell will soon be very dry.
When the sun sets bright and clear,
An easterly wind you need not fear.
Chimney smoke descends, our nice weather ends.
If bees stay at home, rain will soon come,
If they flay away, fine will be the day.
A rainbow afternoon,
Good weather coming soon.
And evening red, and a morning gray, sets the traveler on his way;
An evening gray, and a morning red, makes the farmer hang his head.
When stones sweat, rain you'll get.
If salt is sticky, and gains in weight; it will rain before too late.
