Take A Free Online Course And Become Weather-Wise

We’re offering a free online course during the coronavirus shut down in our digital learning space at BushcraftSchool.com. It’s the same 30-day course we run during our semester programs. It’s a minimal time commitment, maybe 15 minutes per day, with the intended learning outcome that you will learn something useful about the weather and be able to make accurate predictions with no smartphone.

So if you’re bored, need a distraction, or just want to understand more about the mechanics of the sky. feel free to jump on board. Note: You’ll need a copy of Eric Sloane’s Weather Book, which you can get for $5 in the kindle store.

Question: In looking at that beautiful blue sky over the Allagash Wilderness Waterway, what do you think the weather did for the next 24 hours?

  • Just wanted to take an opportunity to say I think it’s great that you are offering an opportunity for folks to learn something interesting and useful while so many people are stuck in their homes.

    Y’all are awesome!

    My guess to your question is the weather turned cold. I spend my summers volunteering as a deckhand on a replica historic wooden sailing boat on the Piscataqua. We take the public out, but may not be sailing this summer. Knowing the weather is important.

    I love the concept. I recall as a teen being able to predict the weather using natural signs . Bradford Angier and the like were my constant companions. Now I have been brainwashed into using all of the tech to predict weather. Time to get back to basics.

  • Thanks Wade.

  • It stayed the same for the next day. I’ve spent many a day sea kayaking on the Piscataqua – in the 90’s a friend lived right next to the water. Super interesting with the fast moving tides. Thanks for the comment Bob.

  • Basics take a little more effort but are usually cheap or free. Thanks John.

  • Thanks Paul.

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
