If the sun rises red in the morning or if there is a small circle round the moon at night it is a sign of rain. If the stars are glittering in the sky it is said that we will have frost. When the clouds seem near it is also a sign of rain. When you see red clouds in the east, or a blue flame in the fire, it is a great sign of a storm. When the curlew is heard calling it is a sign of rain.
Swallows fly high when fine weather is due.
When the seagull is seen on the land it is sure to be stormy weather. It is a sign of bad weather when the cat turns its back to the fire or when the dog eats grass. The hills and mountains seem near when bad weather is nigh. It is a sure sign of rain when the crickets sing sharply. When the spider leaves his cobweb it is also a sign of rain. When rain is due there are always sparks in pots and kettles.
