Fog in August
« on: June 11, 2011, 11:37:18 PM »
   "For every fog in August, there will be a snowfall in Winter".  Going to have to keep track of this one when August arrives.

   Speaking of winter the picture is an alert system you can use next winter! :grin:



Interesting fact:  I just read that weather folklore is based on "fear and superstition".
Weatherlore is based on observations.

I would put that is the category of "ASTROLOGY" being (etiymologically) "reasoning of the stars" and "ASTRONOMY being "principles of the stars."  There was a bit of debate in the 13th century about which one was based on fear and superstition and which one on observations.

   I agree with the astrology/astronomy bit.  People still think astrology is a real science.

And there are a few flat-earthers left around too.

That lore is good news for me. Our area experiences more foggy days than almost everyone else in the US! I'll start counting this August!
