Long since people constantly try to unravel and explore the secret of the universe and the mystery of the world, while predicting the nearest and the future. Observations, natural signs, their various laws - all this kind of experimental knowledge developed in detail into the system and passed with love to other generations and offspring.
And the fact that for a distant ancestor the factor that will take nature and its phenomena was so significant is not surprising, because these people had to travel, and wander, and build their own housing, and try to harvest.
Therefore, at present, people have already become less concerned with this, and therefore less sensitive, they are not able to feel so subtly changes in the environment. The basic need for this has faded into the background, as today's prosperity and plans for the coming day depend on much more significant reasons than the weather outside.
However, sometimes it is very important for a person to know how the next day, month or even the whole season is expected. For this reason, it is possible to turn to the precious experience accumulated by the ancestors, since nature itself had a hand in such an understanding. To learn to understand the language of nature, you should only listen carefully and take a closer look - hints surround us every day.
Signs of bad weather
- The most accurate harbingers of the coming rain - beneficial insects (bees, bumblebees, ants or dragonflies). Bees, for example, can swarm right in front of a hive, and those that flew away leave the plant and gather in small flocks of 10 individuals each. Ants are trying to hide the prey, as well as children away into his nest and immediately close the entrances. Bright fireflies suddenly begin to fade, and blue dragonflies in the confusion gather in flocks and fly apart. But insects of a parasitic nature (mosquitoes and flies, midges and gadflies) simply lose their “mind” and acquire strong aggressiveness. When it starts to rain, they will not be able to fly, which means that they also eat, because they "eat" for the future;
- The behavior of many famous plants very clearly can predict rain. For example, honeysuckle minutes for 30-40 before the rain acquires a divine fragrance, ipomoea twists its delicate petals, violet gently tilts the stems down, and calendula, on the contrary, unfolds its rims. The coltsfoot and the water lily close their beautiful flowers, the drupe straightens the leaves, the clover and the mallow flowers fall, and the burdock instantly opens the spikes. A lot of trees (especially those that bloom or bear honey, as well as conifers) a couple of hours before the rain begin to exude an amazing smell and "stink", oozing tar or juice;
- The animals also feel great changes in weather conditions.. For example, before a heavy rain, fish jump very high in water, starting to catch midges, crayfish fall out on an exercise along the coast and in thickets, and frogs and toads put muzzles out of the water and loudly talk. Sea gulls make a lot of noise or fuss on the shore, and wild ducks try to hide in the reed beds and stay there for a long time. No less accurate "barometer" in order to determine the weather at the present time - it is pets and cattle. Before a thunderstorm, ducks try to find places higher, geese clean their feathers and clap loudly with magnificent wings, chickens suddenly begin to whimper heavily in the middle of the day, dogs run or roll on the grass, and cats carefully and carefully lick their fur on the tail.

And, of course, used only for the benefit of years of accumulated valuable experience.
