Herr Wettermeister, wie wird das Wetter heute? -


Wenn der Hahn kräht auf dem Mist...

ändert sich das Wetter,

oder es bleibt, wie es ist.


Das ist eine alte Bauernregel (This is an old country saying).


Mr. Weather Master, how is the weather going to be today? -

If the cock crows on the dunghill...

Weather will change,

or it remains as it is.


Learn something more:

das Wetter - weather

der Hahn – cock (pl. die Hähne)

der Mist – dung

die Bauernregel - country saying (pl. die Bauernregeln)

Verb: krähen – to crow (past & past participle: krähte, gekräht)

*Read more on ‘Weather’


By he way, the word ‘Mist’ has many slang uses, such as

So ein Mist! - Such a crap!/ What a nuisance!

Verdammter Mist! - Bloody hell!



*Recommended:

Read wonderful articles (English & German) on Science & Tech, Environment, Health and many other topics only on BlogArena.
