Not only did the moon early this morning have a sort of orange cast, it was also tipped a bit to pour out water.

 Izzy Wright would tell you this is a sure and certain sign of rain.

He would be, of course, correct,  as there are drops of silver falling here on Sunrise Ridge today.

Moon – “If the moon’s face is red, of water she speaks.”

This saying of the Zuni Indians is very accurate. The red colour forms as dust is pushed ahead of a weather front. These fronts bring moisture to the area.

“If the moon’s horns are high, it will be dry, if the horns do sink, you will have a drink.”  old weather proverb.
