Have you ever tried to forecast the weather? As a kid I grew up in the country and everyone predicted the weather. It amazed me how often the farmers were right. They always knew when a storm was coming by looking at the sky. If the air became very still, or the wind started blowing hard they knew something was brewing.
Today, we have meteorologists with all kinds of scientific equipment who calculate the weather. Are they more accurate than the farmers were years ago? Well, there's the Farmer's Almanac (two different books- I didn't know this), and a lot of people swear by their predictions.
For me, it's impossible for anyone to be totally accurate, not even science. There are just as many mistakes made by the scientific community as ordinary people make. The farmers aren't scientific, but they had good judgment and good read the signs when something was about to happen.
Have a great week, and I'll see you next Sunday.
