  1. How many times have you been able to predict the change weather by the twitching of your nose?

      Well not just the twitching of your nose, but really by your body telling you it's going to change, and by years of experience telling you what's coming. Our bodies can feel the change of air pressure, a drop in temperature, the behaviour of the birds in the trees, maybe even scent in the air, thats before we have even glanced at the sky or remembered the colour of it from the last evening. These skill fascinate me. My gardener grandfather always new what the weather was going to do...

      I think there could be an inherited instinct in us that can predict the weather, seasons even, might have helped our ancestors survive. Also experience gained by observing the weather daily over a lifetime could give an unconscious understanding of what may come, shorter and even longer term

      That's a fair point Bobby, certainly we have forgotten much. Reading the landscape and animals goes a long way, especially what the birds are doing, and cows, the cows certainly do go lay down a few hours before the weather hits, and sheep they go in the corners of the fields. So those creatures know which way the weather is going without the help of the weather channel. :)
