    Wanna participate??? Sunday #2 5-8-11

    Two things stand out about Easter (other than my religous upbringing) in my mind as a child. My paternal Grandmother would always bake a lamb shaped cake and bring it to dinner. Chocolate with white icing, jelly beans around the bottom. Inevitably she would remark about the weather and whatever it was, state that the next seven sundays would have the same weather. I don't know why. I don't know the reasoning behind her statement. I do remember trying to keep track but never going the distance. So this year, here, I want to try to find out if it holds true for her. This past Sunday, 4/24 was cloudy but no rain and in the high 50's. I will try to post the next successive Sunday's weather and see the validity to her statements. Participate if you want. Anyone else ever hear of this weather folk lore? Know where it comes from?

    Sunday #1 - 5/1

    Sunday #2 - 5/8

    Sunday #3 - 5/15

    Sunday #4 - 5/22

    Sunday #5 - 5/29

    Sunday #6 - 6/5

    Sunday #7 - 6/12

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    I haven't heard this bit of weather lore, but I'm game to play.

    It was overcast and cool here in my part of LA today.

    That's a new one for me as well. Pretty cool folklore though.

    I'll tag along too. Sunday was partly sunny, some showers and in the 50's

    If it rains on Easter Sunday, it will rain for the next 7 Sundays. Usually works for about 4/7.

    Seeing how we have had over 5 inches since Friday morning, I really wish this wasn't true. So far this year we have had 20 inches and a touch.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.
