For many years I was mystified as to how those little weather houses worked.
After endless searching I finally found a plan for one and so I am presenting it here for all who may be interested.
The weather house type of weather forecaster is a very old traditional type
that was popular in Europe, especially Germany.
Changes in the weather cause a gut string to twist.
The string is attached to small figures of a man and a woman.
If the old woman is outside of the house, the weather will be fair; when the old man comes out, stormy weather is predicted.
If you like to carve and are interested in the weather, this is a very enjoyable
project. And, incidentally, a very reliable forecaster. Enjoy!
