"What's it doin' out there, y'all? Well, take a look-see, would ya?" From the folks on Davis Hill, this Wooden Weather Stick will tell you what the weather is up to. If it's favorable and nice, the stick will point to the sky; and when it looks like the elements are gonna kick up a fuss, the stick will point to the ground. We haven't got an inkling as to how it works, but the "old timers" sure have faith in the twig so we'll stick to our wise elders' intuition. The Wooden Weather Stick should be mounted outdoors under the eaves, on a window frame, or on a porch, garage or barn wall— just be sure you can see from inside your house. When first installed, it will take a little while to get used to its new surroundings. But do be patient with it, and it will serve you well for a long time. Some have lasted fifteen years!

Great fun gift for someone that loves the weather or outdoors. Fun conversation starter. I give as gifts and everyone asks "what is the stick doing?"

A: Hi Bill, Thank you for your question. The ones we sell are likely made by the same folks. Ours are by Davis Hill out of Vermont. Have a great day!

Q: I recently purchase one of your weather sticks. It has been up for 10 days. The stick curves up nicely but does not curve down in bad weather,only straight out. Should I give it more time to adapt Previous sticks have curved up and down.
A: Hi Paul, Thank you for your question. The weather sticks are a completely natural process and each branch has different characteristics based upon its structure, shape and the moisture in the air. Your unique weather stick maybe straight during humid weather while another stick might point downward. The range of motion is different for each unique weather stick. Make a note or chart of the position of your weather stick and the humidity in the air each day and get to know your weather sticks range of motion and what each position means. We hope this helps and please let us know if we can answer any questions. Here is a very detailed link to how and why a weather stick works. http://www.new-potato.com/wstick/Science/science.html
