Lulu the Snow Goat is the remarkable true story of a Nubian goat living on a farm in North Carolina who always knows when snow is coming. Even when meteorologists fail to predict it, without fail Lulu heads to the barn and snuggles up in the hay...and a few hours later, snow begins to fall.
Soon Lulu's owner Earl realizes that the only time she goes to the barn is when it is going to snow. And so, the next time he sees Lulu head to the barn, Earl alerts school superintendent Joe Sinclair so he can close the schools in time to keep kids safe at home.
But when Lulu's "prediction" doesn't match the local meteorologist's, Dr. Joe decides to ignore Earl's advice. A few hours later, the buses are struggling to stay on the road due to the ice and snow that has fallen.
Dr. Joe decides to trust Lulu's instincts from then on, no matter how foolish he might look taking advice from a goat!
Soon, Lulu the Snow Goat becomes a local hero. And not only does she help keep kids safe, but her fame also helps raise scholarship money to send kids to college.
