Today’s Photo:  Grazing Cows

Growing up I always heard of “old wives” tales and other stories of how to tell the weather.  Things like the leaves turning over, the sun being red in the morning and many others.  Several months ago, my wife ran across one that said cows lie down when it is supposed to rain.  I can confirm, that is an “old wives” tail.  I pass these cows and many more nearly everyday.  There is not rhyme or reason as to when they are lying down.  I have seen them standing through thunderstorms and the entire heard on the ground when it was bright and shiny and had been for days and was afterward for days.  However, it is kinda fun to pretend to be the weather forecaster and I find that I am right as much as they are.
