About this title

Synopsis:

It’s a well-known fact that New England weather changes every five minutes. What most people don’t know, however, is how to plan these changes without the aid of an often-wrong weatherman. What if you could read and predict the weather yourself? Your grandparents and great-grandparents could do it – why not you?

Yankee Weather Proverbs is a collection of some of the best and most reliable weather predictors there are. Common sense, awareness of the landscape, and memorable rhymes are all you need to predict the weather – the same way generations of Yankees have done it. Couple that with gorgeous depictions of the Yankee landscape, and you’ve got a classic book of timeless resources and pleasures.

More than 125 proverbs and 35 color illustrations by Vermont artist Daryl V. Storrs are contained in this pocket-sized compendium. It’s a great gift, a trustworthy travel companion, and an indispensable book for Yankees and non-Yankees alike.
