RE: Flys

Hi Bill, remember me from way way back?

Next time you see a fly in the house take note. It will usually rain within a few hours or so..

The NWS predicts rain this weekend, I'll see if the flies agree.

Do

you mean you only get flies if it is going to rain.
The converse is that no rain no flies.
You hang a bit of raw meat in your kitchen on a hot day you will get flies rain or no rain.In fact you will think it is raining flies.
I'm with your 'Hubby' Belinda
