    When my husband was a kid, his father would be the last farmer to plant corn in Spring. Everyone else’ corn would be growing and his Dad would wait until the oak leaves were the size of a squirrel’s foot, then they would plant. Sure enough every year the other farmers corn would grow and then stall and Irv’s corn would just sail right by. Patience and an awareness of your surroundings will usually get you out front in the long run.

    But if you have a computer, this has to be the most info dense weather info on one webpage!

    Funny, I know most of that information, but I don’t know I could conjure it up with an essay exam. So, sure nice to have it all condensed in one graphic!

    Thanks to Jojo for the WeatherSpark link. Bummer that it’s Flash-based, but they’re developing a HTML-5 version, so will check it out once that launches.

    That information, and quite a bit more on using clouds, winds, etc to predict local weather, used to be available in the Boy Scout Handbook years ago.
