What on Earth Is A Storm Glass?
The storm glass was developed by Admiral Robert Fitzroy and used on his historic voyage with Charles Darwin on the HMS Beagle. It’s a first class weather predictor. The unique liquid inside the sealed Storm Glass responds to changes in the weather, allowing you to forecast the possibility of storms, snow, wind, rain or clear skies. And what’s more, they look awesome on a display shelf.
What Is Your Storm Glass Is Telling You?
Ever wondered how to read a storm glass? Here’s how...
> If the liquid in the glass is clear, look forward to a bright and fine day.
> If the liquid is cloudy, pack a raincoat and brolly.
> If there are small dots in the liquid, it will be sweaty, perhaps with fog about.
> A cloudy glass with small stars indicates thunder and lightning.
> If the liquid contains small stars on sunny winter days, then you’ll soon be building Frosty the Snowman.
> If there are large flakes throughout the liquid, it means humidity in summer and snow in winter.
> If there are crystals at the bottom, a frost may blitz your veggies.
> If there are threads near the top, hang on to your hat, a gusty day is ahead.
