Fig. of the clouds: QUOT: When the sky “upsets” towards the north, i.e. when large masses of clouds of different hues rise towards the north, or according to an expression sometimes used, “Fan rawns is roastin (from the reddish hues in the clouds),” with the wind from the south, the wind for a time overcomes the clouds, but the saying is: — “There's warrin atween the north an the sooth, an' there'll be nae peace till the north get victory.” The wind goes to the north, and blows a breeze, it may be for a day or two. When the clouds form a large solid mass: — “a kiltin,” as some call it, the breeze is close at hand.
