“When the goose honks high, fair weather;
when the goose honks low, foul weather!”
- French Proverb
My neighbour's geese always choose the midnight hour to warn of some real (or imaginary!) danger and their honking and nattering seems to take on some extra urgency if I don't see my neighbour's lights go one as he checks what the commotion is all about.
This is what I imagine the midnight nattering looks like!
