Weather lore interesting, but Knifleyans more scientific

About: Link: Byron Crawford has serious winter weather forecasting

To the Editor,

The link to Byron Crawford's piece about weather predictions was interesting but that folk lorical stuff needs to be taken with a grain, or sometimes a whole shaker of salt.

On the other hand, Miz Emily has developed her own scientificul prognostications based on recent observations:

  1. If we have sustained temperatures above 70 for any period in January, February or March followed by 5 consecutive deep freezes in April - We cannot expect any Pan-Dowdy, Brown Bettys, Crisps or Turn-overs!
  2. If July and August stay in the upper 90''s and rainfall is less than 25% of normal - We can expect to spend less on gas for the lawn mowers.
  3. If the Old Farmer's Almanac predicts a very rare or extreme weather pattern - get your copy early 'cause the news stands will sell out quick.
  4. If the weather pattern is completely normal - Cof and his ilk will still be at Baker's and Crossroads discussing and cussing it.
