3+2 Spanish sayings about the weather
1-Cielo estrellado a los dos días mojado,
“Sky with stars, will bring rain in two day”, who does not like look at the stars at night( more in a summer night) well….when you enjoy that and it was a particular night with lots of stars, probably someone will ruin the moment trying to be “the forecast man”, and the worse thing….they will be right, check it, lots of stars one night and two days later rain….quaranteed at 85% of the times.
2-En abril aguas mil,
“ In April thousand of water” usually April is a rainy month, and even when some Spanish will moan, other will remind them that that is what happen in that month, not reason to panic..it is just life
3-Marzo ventoso, abril lluvioso, sacan a mayo florido y hermoso,
“windy March, wet April will take us to a beautiful and flowery May,” it sounds topic and like another saying in order to not get too upset when the weather in March and April gets a bit “nasty”, but it is a cheked one J if those two months are like they are supposed to be (windy and wet) we will have a beautiful month in May that will mark the beginning of the summer.
I do not know if these saying will applying in other countries but I would love to know (leave a comment below) letting us know if they work for your country too J
And the last one it is not quite accurate for weather forecast…but talks about weather too, so that is my + 2
Solo nos acordamos de Santa Bárbara cuando truena, “We just think about Santa Barbara when there is thunderstorm”,
ok that is a bit of a traditional one, Santa Bárbara is the saint who protect us againts storms and thunders, and the only time people think about her is one there is storm. So even when it is weather related the actual meaning of this one is that you just think about someone when we need something from them (sad, but truth, at least for some people).
Easy today, just leave a comment below, (as like usual I would love to hear from you), do you know any other sayings (in Spanish or in your language) about weather, did you know these ones? Which one is your favourite?
And as usual I encourage you to use them as much as possible, you do not have an excuse, as they talk about weather, and we are in contact with the weather daily J so come on, if you do not use it in your conversations at least think about them 🙂
I hope you enjoy and learn heaps J , or just something new as another Spanish saying goes….
“Nunca te acostarás sin saber una cosa más” what means…you will never go to bed not learning something new, or what is the same, “you learn something new everyday” do you agree?
If you enjoy this please spread the word, your friends (and I ) will appreciate it J
