Curious About Weather Beacon

Ken Tucci

What is the jingle that is used to tell what the light on the old Hancock building means   РRon, Lowell

Here it is:

Steady blue, clear view;

Flashing blue, clouds due;

Steady red, rain ahead;

Flashing red, snow instead.

The weather beacon will also flash red during baseball season if the Sox game is cancelled.

The guy who operates the light must be freaking out today switching from snow to rain to who knows what!
