Weather Lore


Custard winds the pining north east winds prevalent here about Easter when custards are more particularly in request as a popular dainty.


The wind at north and east,

Is neither good for man nor beast;

So never think to cast a clout

Until the month of May be out


Don’t change a clout

Till may is out;

If you change in June,

‘Twill be too soon.

One thought on “Weather Lore

  1. My Grandma, from generations of Somerset folk always used to tell me ‘cast not a clout til May be out’, which suits me fine, particularly now living on Teesside, and gives me a rationale for sticking with my winter woollies whilst others are wearing shorts and t shirts
