Read an interesting article this AM. Apparently your morning cup of coffee can help predict rain, according to Backpacker Magazine. It’s a trick used by backpackers. Pour a cup of coffee and then watch the bubbles…
“If the bubbles amass in the center, you’re in a high-pressure system, which is making the coffee’s surface convex (higher in the middle). Since bubbles are mostly air, they migrate to the highest point. It’s going to be a beautiful day. If the bubbles form a ring around the sides of the mug, you’re in a low-pressure system, making the surface concave. Rain is likely. Note: It has to be strong, brewed coffee to have enough oil to work, and the mug must have straight sides.” – Backpacker Magazine
I may have to give this a try to see how well it works. Experiment in the near future? I think so!
