predicting the weather by observing clouds

i have an umbrella that i hate – it is too big, slightly bowed (so it always falls to the ground whenever i lean it against something), and seems to become inverted if i so much as sneeze while it’s open. i have also tripped over it about fifty times and stabbed countless scores of innocents with its ridiculously long and pointy metal tip, which looks like a mini lightning rod – man i hate that thing. for some reason i’ve managed to keep it around for years, while the nice, compact umbrellas i sometimes buy seem to vanish overnight.

this weekend i ended up toting the dreaded umbrella every day as i couldn’t figure out what was going on with the weather. this morning i did a little research and found this link on how to predict the weather by observing clouds.
