This is the yearly #Scifipawty charity

Until relatively recently, weather forecasting was based on experience and observation.  And to help people remember what these observations meant, catchy sayings would be invented, sayings like;

Red sky at night, sailors delight.  
Red sky in morning, sailors take warning.
Rain by seven, fine by eleven.
If the groundhog sees its shadow on February 2nd, there will be 6 more weeks of winter
March comes in like a lamb and goes out like a lion. (Or March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.
April showers bring May flowers

These days, weather forecasting is based on scientific data and much more reliable than things like the grumpy groundhogs that predicted 6 more weeks of winter, or promises of April showers bringing May flowers.  

Many of us here in the midwest had a couple of feet of winter on our lawns 10 1/2 weeks after that prediction.  For the most part, March was a lamb from start to finish.  And the April showers were more often snow, not rain.  

That said, April showers, whether snow or rain, are still APRIL showers, and after April comes May and spring and flowers.  So this week, put on your raincoats and boots, get out the umbrella and let's say goodbye to April with an April Showers pawty!
