Cape Cod Yankee Weather Rhymes

There are many Yankee rhymes and sayings about the weather. Here is an old one:

Wind from the west is the softest and the best.
Wind from the north is of very little worth.
Wind from the east, bad for man and for beast.
Wind from the south is too hot for thou both.

Here’s another one:

When the wind is from the East, the fishing is the least.

Unless of course you are fishing for dogfish, which are known to “flood in” on an Easterly wind.
