From the Publisher
Rain before seven, fine by eleven.
When chimney smoke descends the fair weather ends.
When swallows fly high the weather will be dry;
when birds fly low expect rain and a blow
On Cindy Day's grandmother's farm, the weather wasn't predicted with a computer or official forecast, but by accumulated wisdom and careful observation. Cindy's grandma was a constant prognosticator, making predictions about the weather that more often than not, proved correct! Grandma Says is a collection of 80 weather-related sayings that Cindy recalls from her grandmother. Now CTV's meteorologist, Cindy explains the science behind this traditional weather lore, and over 40 accent illustrations complement the text.
