Sacrée météo

« L’hiver, s’il n’est pas dans un bout, il est dans l’autre »

Neige sur les champs

Neige sur les champs

En octobre, les anciens d’aujourd’hui ne s’étaient pas trompés. La neige a précédé Noël.

Mais, il y a 170 ans, étaient-ils aussi perspicaces?

L’Abbé Fret, dans ses « Antiquités et chroniques percheronnes » parues en 1840, rapporte quelques dictions locaux :
« Les Percherons croient que la température des trois fêtes de Noël, influe sur les mois de mars, avril et mai. S’il fait beau le jour de Noël, mars sera beau, s’il fait froid le jour de la Saint-Etienne, avril sera froid, et la température de mai sera celle du jour Saint-Jean évangéliste, et vice versa.
 » Ils disent aussi : quand la Chandeleur est claire, l’hiver est par derrière ; quand (ce jour là), le soleil luiserne, l’ours rentre dans sa caverne ; c’est-à-dire, il y a encore pour quarante jours de froid, ce qui ne se vérifie pas toujours. L’hiver, disent-ils encore, est un petit bonhomme caché dans un bissac*, s’il ne vient tôt, il vient tard ; s’il n’est pas dans un bout, il est dans l’autre.
Suivant eux, s’il fait vent le six août, jour de Notre-Dame-des-Neiges, le bled sera très cher ; si le temps est clame, il sera bon marché.
Enfin, ils disent encore : telles rogations**, telles fenaisons.
S’il fait beau ces trois jours, les foins se ramasseront bien, s’il pleut, c’est le contraire. S’il pleut le jour de saint Opportune (22 avril), n’y aura ni cerises, ni guignes, ni prunes ; s’il pleut le jour de saint Mâ (saint Marc 25 avril), n’y aura ni fri, ni fra (point de fruits à couteau ni à cidre).

En 2010, nous verrons bien ce qu’il en est.


* Bissac: sac à deux poches, besace.

** Les jours des Rogations sont les trois jours précédant immédiatement l’Ascension dans le calendrier liturgique chrétien.

  1. Good day! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d
    figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?
    My blog discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit
    from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!

  3. Hi there! I understand this is somewhat off-topic
    however I needed to ask. Does operating a well-established blog like yours take a massive amount
    work? I’m brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience
    and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
