— If the rock does not cast a shadow and is not wet, the sky is cloudy.
— If the rock is difficult to see, it is foggy.
— If the rock is white, it is snowing.
— If the rock is coated with ice, there is a frost.
— If the ice is thick, it’s a heavy frost.
— If the rock is bouncing, there is an earthquake.
— If the rock is under water, there is a flood.
— If the rock is warm, it is sunny.
— If the rock is missing, there was a tornado.
— If the rock is wet and swinging violently, there is a hurricane.
— If the rock can be felt but not seen, it is night time.
— If the rock has white splats on it, watch out for birds.
