WEATHERMAN

I REMEMBER BEING TOLD QUITE A LONG TIME AGO THIS FACT
ABOUT THE FORECASTING OF WEATHER. IF, IN THE EARLY
EVENING, AS THE SUN IS SLOWLY SETTING, IT APPEARS AS A
LARGE PINK BALL ON THE HORIZON, IT MEANS THAT THE NEXT
DAY WILL BE VERY HOT AND THERE WILL BE NO RAIN.
AND FOR AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER, THE SUN HASN'T BEEN
WRONG. THIS CONDITION APPLIES MOSTLY IN THE SUMMER,
I AM TOLD.

Submitter comment: THE INFORMANT, MY MOTHER, WHEN QUESTIONED ABOUT THIS
INFORMATION, CLAIMS THAT SHE NEVER HEARD OF IT. (?)
