Weather-lore

“When a cow tries to scratch its ear
It means a shower be very near
When it begins to thump its rib with its tail
Look out for thunder, lightning and hail.”
– Old English

“When pigs carry sticks
The clouds will play tricks,
When they lie in the mud
No fear of a flood.”

“If the adder could hear
And the blind worm could see,
Neither man nor beast
Would ever go free …”
