If it's turning counter clockwise that opens the faucet to let it rain, not sure how soon after though. 

A friend from your way asked me which way the water turned down here in Oz.

I did a survey of the building complex - 25 sinks, basins and toilets

12 one way, 13 the other.

I had to suggest that it looked like the hand of the plumber over-rode Coriolis.

a snake on the road or a dog eating grass means it's going to rain.

when you see the redwing blackbirds, it's time to go fishing

put your honey supers on your beehives when the maple leaves are as big as a squirrels ear.

if your problem can't be fixed with a hammer, it's probably electrical


Smart-alleck sayings:

have a nice trip? see you in the fall (said when someone trips)

I was never a boy scout, but I ate a brownie once. (said when discussing scouts or knot-tying, etc.)

...and if a frog had wings, he wouldn't bump his a$$ every time he hopped (said when someone wishes for something)

even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then. (similar to the hog and acorn)

That guy is so stupid, he couldn't pour sand out of his boots, if the instructions were written on the bottom.

That's a very good one.

My Dad used to say:  He's so stupid, if his brains were dynamite, and you strike a match near his ear, his hat wouldn't even lift from his head..

Sun shines on every dog's a$$ sooner or later.

I never screwed up anything so bad I couldn't throw it away and start over.

If you never leave the break table you won't ever screw anything up.
