Hmm... Interesting, but how could that help. What is the method behind this?

I use the calibrated rock and a rope method.......

Could you please elaborate further how does it work exactly?

Thank you!

Calibrated rock:

You can see the rock - the sun is shining.
The rock has no shadow - it is cloudy
The rock is wet - it is raining
The rock is white - it is snowing
The rock is moving - tornado.


The calibrated rope:

The rope hangs down - there is no wind
The rope moves a little - there is a light breeze
The rope is horizontal - there is a very strong wind
The rope is pointing up - you are in a tornado
The rope is wet - it is raining.

A variety of these instruments you might come close.
 Sometime water on the knee acts up with inflamation acts as an old psychological barometer.
Bad sinus headaches sometime acts as a tail \..
Forgot if that rope were wet and it can stand straight if it were lifted it, you can say it wet from freezing rain at a temperature below 32 deg F.

We do something very similar here except we use calibrated sheep instead. Some of the sound effects can be quite entertaining, particularly when you trip over one in fog or a snowdrift.

You forgot two of the calibration points for the calibrated rope.
You cannot see the rope- it is foggy.
The rope has disappeared- hurricane.

"Some of the sound effects can be quite entertaining, particularly when you trip over one in fog or a snowdrift."
And that, your Honour, concludes the case for the defence.

If we had de fence, we might not be tripping over de dang sheep in the first place!

Anyway, it's well known that sheeps like nothing better than a bit of slapstick comedy.
