  • Description

    The community of Roseburg in Oregon, USA has an infallible way of telling the weather--a herd of goats. For 40 years the herd has roamed the slopes of Mount Nebo north of the township, and for 40 years the townspeople have judged the day's weather by the roaming of the goats. The higher the goats go, the better the weather--and the lower they go the worse it gets--like a barometer. The goats have become such an institution there's even a "goat-report" broadcast daily.

    This amusing illustration of nature's own weather forecasting system comes complete with a commentary from the National Broadcasting Company--a transcript of this is given overleaf.
