Milwaukee’s Forecast: No change in view

The Wisconsin Gas Building’s flame was such a pretty shade of blue beneath the overcast sky this afternoon that I had to stop and take this picture.  The flame changes color to announce the weather forecast:

When the flame is red, there’s warm weather ahead!
When the flame is gold, watch out for cold!
When the flame is blue, there’s no change in view!
When there’s a flickering flame, expect snow or rain!

Today was gray, dry (after the morning snow fizzled out), and seasonably mild (highs in the low thirties). For a December day, that’s not bad. A little blah, but very livable. “No change in view” sounds good to me! 🙂
