This will always be one of the most accurate weather forecasts: https://britishbeaches.uk/porthallow...nd/photos/7471
Thank you. A wonderful example of dry Brit humour.

Even squirrels know when winter will be worse then "normal" and they gather extra food, build nests higher up the trees etc... Perhaps, if we listen and observe more we will find that the answers were right in front of us all along.
Sooooo... no animals ever die in storms, starve, or just get surprised by sudden events? Actually on some limited level I agree. Before our human ancestors had homes or even caves to protect themselves weather was literally life and death and there were extremely few distractions. It stands to reason we became less attuned when it became less needed to pay attention to for the immediate future. It is not as if Evolution does not include loss. I am sometimes a bit jealous that animals can drink almost any water they find, walk around with no clothes in weather extremes, etc but then I recall that animals revolve around and depend upon (or avoid) us and birds are all that remains of dinosaurs. They did on the whole have an impressive run and it remains to be seen if intellect is actually a successful evolutionary attribute but the odds don't look too awfully bad.

Not quite as cool as The Weather Stone, but quite reliable for longer times and wider areas, both of those are quite good.
