How to Forecast Weather Without Gadgets | Survival Spot
Step outside. If you can see Mt Hood it's clear! If you can't see Mt Hood it's raining!
Very interesting facts...especially for animals.
Steep ant hills
Birds on wires
Cows huddled together
More turtles walking around
Cats cleaning behind their ears
If we ever collapse as a society my real only hope is that all this knowledge and experience that has been learned and passed down through the generations doesn't get forgotten.
Lived here too long to worry about the weather. Just have to prepare for anything.
It already has for the most part. All young people know comes off a screen and who knows if young people possess a memory. Everything is at their fingertips, as long as the power is still on that is.
pretty easy to forecast rain the Greater Seattle and PDX area....
As follows -
Only two kinds of weather in western Oregon and Washington.
Wet and Wetter.
You second vehicle should be a boat.
I prefer the immersion method. Spend enough time at sea on a sailboat, particularly single handing, and you become very sensitive to the weather. That being said, nothing beats a good barometer.
Lived on a Morgan OI-33 for 2 1/2 yrs.
True on the weather ! Again it builds instincts.
In upper Oregon City, we've had intense fog for a couple of days. Can't even see to the end of the block. I've driven quite a bit the last couple of days, and everywhere I've been the fog has been as thick as soup. It is not isolated to my area.
I know, fog is not abnormal here this time of year. But, I've watched the weather report on KATU tonight, and today, and they insist there is no fog anywhere west of Mt. Hood. Even the fog map they continually show shows we are clear.
I hope this is not the same weather equipment supplying information to the airlines.
What am I missing?
That info comes from our government Im sure...
Everybody in the Pacific Northwest needs ten acres, and nine of them under cover.
That government supplied info is also used by the TV weather folks. And that's my point. If the National Weather Service says there is no fog, and the TV station repeats there is no fog, then the tower, using the same weather service, tells the airplanes there is no fog.
Doesn't work in the dark
I have a surefire method of weather forecasting.
The weather deck, wet, icy, snowy, dry, dry and hot.
Weather dogs, wet, limping, powdered, etc.
Weather wife, dogs come in wet and muddy... not pretty
Around here you can pretty much predict the weather by the calender if you think about it.
