Quod Caelum Est?

(Translation: What's the weather today?)

hic pluit hodie mane! It's raining here this morning!

You'll always be prepared to answer that question with a shirt from the Cafe Press shop of Taberna Magistrae (the shop of a teacher) . Apparently the Magistra's students wanted Latin language weather-themed shirts -- and when she couldn't find any, she created her own. Each shirt bears the question "Quod Caelum Est?" with illustrations and phrases for different kinds of weather. Very clever! In addition to t-shirts, tanks, sweatshirts and golf shirts, she also has messenger bags, mugs and caps with a Latin and meteorological theme!
