The Weather Rock

One of the cheapest and simplest weather prediction devices is the Weather Rock:

Although it's only good enough to predict current weather conditions, it's been in use for a long time and is expected to be in use for a long time to come.



Dry Rock Fair weather
Wet rock Rain
Dusty rock Dust storm
Swaying rock Windy
Shadow under rock Sunny
Can't see stone Foggy
White rock (wet) Snow
Rock jumping up and down Earth tremor
Rock under water Airfield flooded.

To construct your own, take one medium sized rock (or stone) and suspend it in a position from which it may easily be seen. It is reported that the Weather Rock is 100% accurate.
