Additional Information

Vermont Weather Stick

  • A great way to teach kids about weather science
  • Made in Vermont of balsam fir

Here's a fun, low-tech way to predict the weather. It seems too simple to be true, but our old-time, balsam wood Weather Stick is actually a remarkably effective natural barometer. It responds to subtle atmospheric changes by bending upward in fair weather, and down when inclement weather is near.

Product Details

  • Natural balsam fir wood
  • Approx 15" L

            We hosted a going away party for a friend. The weather was beautiful at the start of the party and then the storms rolled and in. Everyone was amazed at the weather stick's change . It worked. Great conversation piece.

            Comments about Vermont Weather Stick:

            When I was little, my Mom was a weather guru. She had a barometer in the kitchen and a weird stick to find water. We learned about life from her and about the world from Dad. He, being a chemical engineer took a different view to Mom. Both, they were both weather monitors. This stick is an instrument my Mom would have owned! It brings Joy to my heart! I speak with my sister daily, and discussed this stick, loved finding the perfect spot and waiting patiently for it to do it's thing! At the end of my explanation to her, she said, "I have one too!" We both agreed, this was a "Mom" tool!!! So, I also gave one to my 92 year old mother-in-law. She is an old farmer, she smiled and said, this is a real weatherman!!! Thank you! I will be ordering more. Perfect gift for generations and conversations!

                Comments about Vermont Weather Stick:

                We have one of these that was given as a gift several years ago and love it. I ordered several this year to give but was highly disappointed with the quality. 2 or 3 of them were so flimsy that I was embarrassed to give them. They are still sitting in the box. If this is the kind of quality I get from you I won't be ordering again.

                  We've had ours for 7 years now, it's fun to check it out especially when you think that you know what the days weather will be like and it tells you something else! There has been one up at my grandfathers house for years!

                    My husband bought this so many many years ago, on a trip to TN. I put it away and never used it. My son, while going through his Dads things found it and put it out on the Deck. My sister in law asked what it was, I told her and before her visit ended, would check it constantly- she wanted one so bad after seeing how accurate it was, I purchased one for her and when she went to Fl. for the winter, took it with her- her neighbors seen it and wanted one also so I had two more sent to them in Florida. Now they are getting them all over their "Snow Bird Winter Park". I chuckle when I hear how excited they are over this little piece of wood :)
