science and folk-lore, with the science as a predominating matter let us know How to tell the weather from: clouds, dew, mist, haze, fog, wind, stars, rainbows, rain, hail, birds, animals, insects, fish and plants. The wisdom acquired from our ancestors has been perpetuated in the form of trite sayings or proverbs. Many of these sayings are polished gems of weather lore, others have lost their potency by transfer to foreign lands where dissimilar climatic conditions obtain, and a large proportion have been born of fancy and superstition.This book separates from the mass of available data the true sayings that are applicable to the United States, and combines the material thus collected with reports on local weather signs that have been officially and specially prepared by observers of the United States Weather Bureau.
