30 Days Wild | Day twenty nine - Watch the clouds.

Watch the Clouds - Elizabeth Anne
Turn your gaze towards the heavens and watch the fluffy clouds float by. In today's modern life, we can easily access information on the weather forecast from television programs, radio stations and apps therefore, plan what to wear and any social plans that may be affected. However, have you thought how people used to forecast the weather? Before technology became so prominent in our lives, we used to turn our gaze towards the clouds as certain shapes would foretell the weather. This was a vital skill that people relied on. However, in present day, we tend to make out pretty shapes and gaze dreamily at the little cotton fluff balls. Although wouldn't it be boring staring up at a cloudless sky? So for 30 Days Wild, why not lie back and watch the clouds float by?

You can even have a go at telling your cumulus from cirrostratus clouds and I have listed some lovely books and apps below:
