Accurate or Not? You decide!

(1/5) > >>

So I thought about having some fun with this forum. Somebody posts a weather folklore, and then we decide whether it's accurate or not accurate. Here we go!!

If salt is sticky,
And gains in weight;
It will rain
Before too late

Accurate.  Sort of.

Old Tele man:
Sodium Chloride (salt) is hygroscopic...attracts water from air.

Lookup the word: deliquescence

This is one that I remember from the Bible.
Red sky at night, shepherd’s delight, red sky in the morning shepherd's warning’

gee thought the saying was "If your shoe sticks to the floor, don't reach down and feel for why."
Salt really doesn't get sticky.
