11.14.11 – Predicting Weather by the Moon with Ken Ring of Predict Weather.com – Ken is well established for predicting weather by the moon in New Zealand, Australia and the UK. His work is just beginning to be understood by ‘sun-happy’ weather researchers in the U.S.

According to Ring, ‘The best way to predict the future is by looking at the past. Our method looks at trends and cycles of moon orbits. Accurate future knowledge about weather in your business plan gives you the edge, both for your own purposes and in the competitive marketplace. Imagine how much could be saved by cancelling or postponing events before it rained and perhaps by putting on more staff if you knew beforehand that the weather was going to be fine. Much more could be made by a larger turnout to a festival, gala or market day and much could be saved by avoiding thunderstorms or snowfall times.’

I started the Inconvenient Woman Blog in 2007, and am the product of a long line of inconvenient women. The matriarchal line is French-Canadian, Roman Catholic, with a very feisty Irish great-grandmother thrown in for sheer bloody mindedness. I am a research analyst and author who has made her living studying technical data, and developing articles, training materials, books and web content. Tracking through statistical data, and oblique cross-references to find the relevant connections that identifies a problem, or explains a path of action, is my passion. I love clearly delineating the magic questions of knowledge: Who, What, Why, When, Where and for How Much, Paid to Whom. My life lessons: listen carefully, question with boldness, and personally verify the answers. I look at America through the appreciative eyes of an immigrant, and an amateur historian; the popular and political culture is a ceaseless fascination. I have no impressive initials after my name. I’m merely an observer and a chronicler, an inconvenient woman who asks questions, and sometimes encourages others to look at things differently.
