From the jacket:
"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 grandmother was a constant prognosticator, making predictions about the weather that more often than not proved correct!
Grandma Says is a collection of eighty weather-related sayings and prognostications based on traditional knowledge and experience.
Now a meteorologist at CTV Atlantic, Cindy explains the origins and the science behind this weather lore, so that readers young and old can better understand the world around them."
Cindy Day grew up on a dairy farm in Bainsville, Ontario and has been a meteorologist for over twenty-five years.
