When the soot falls from the chimney it is the sign of bad weather. When the cat sharpens his nails it is the sign of rain. When the swallows fly high it is the sign of good weather. When the cat has his back to the fire it is the sign of frost. When you see a dog eating grass it is the sign of rain.
