  1. I am an accurate weather forecaster. I can tell you 24 hours ahead when it is going to rain by the aching of my legs. The only logical scientific explanation I can give for this is that with some arthritis in my knees, I have become sensitive to changes in atmospheric pressure. Low pressure usually means rain. Perhaps our bones take a length of time to adjust to these changes. This theory is supported by the fact that I also ache on long distance plane flights. this has only been the case since I reached my mid sixties in age.
