There are many tokens by which we know whether the weather will be bad or good. If foxes bark much in October they are calling up a great fall of snow.
January 14th will be either the wettest or coldest day in the year. If smoke goes straight up the chimney rain may be expected.
If on the trees the leaves still hold,
The coming winter will be cold.
