On a bleak winter’s day, a friend’s mum often says, ‘It’s darker than the inside of a cow.’
Weather is the most universal conversation starter. And there’s nothing like a saying to help you remember weather predictions.
Mares’ tails and mackerel scales make tall ships take in their sails.
When spider’s webs in air do fly, the spell will soon be very dry.
If a goose honks high, fair weather; if a goose honks low, foul weather.
If a rooster crows on going to bed, you may rise with a watery head.
