Are Moles Meteorologists?

Forecasting the weather is thought to be vital for moles and since the 17th century weather lore experts have looked to them for predictions. In the case of flood the creatures are said to abandon low lying land and  head to high ground prior to a deluge. If a mole is seen throwing up fresh earth during a frosty spell it is supposed to be a sign of a thaw within 48 hours. If a mole throws up more earth than usual this suggests rain is on the way as the creature burrows deeper to avoid the wet. If a mole's store of worms for the winter is unusually small it foretells a mild winter.
