On Cindy Day's grandmother's farm, the weather wasn't predicted with a computer or official forecast, but by accumulated wisdom and careful observation. Cindy's grandma was a constant prognosticator, making predictions about the weather that more often than not, proved correct!
Grandma Says is a collection of 80 weather-related sayings that Cindy recalls from her grandmother. Now CTV Atlantic's meteorologist, Cindy explains the science behind this traditional weather lore, and over 40 accent illustrations complement the text.
Cindy Day grew up on a dairy farm in Bainsville, Ontario, surrounded by nature and influenced by wise parents and a grandmother with a keen sense for forecasting the weather. She has been a meteorologist for over twenty-five years, most recently on television with CTV Atlantic.
