While groundhogs are known to predict the weather, they aren’t the only animals that can tip you off about the climate outside.
* When a cow endeavors to scratch its ear, it means a shower is very near.
* If the robin sings in the bush, then the weather will be coarse;
* If the robin sings on the barn, then the weather will be warm.
* Wild geese, wild geese, going out to sea, all fine weather it will be.
* Wolves always howl more before a storm.
* Deer and elk come down from the mountains at least two days before a storm.
* When a squirrel eats nuts in a tree, weather is as warm as warm can be.
* Good weather may be expected when a cat washes itself, but when it licks its coat against the grain, expect bad weather.
So before you put away those winter boots or your rain gear, observe how your pets or wild animals are behaving.
