Sao Ch’ing Niang Niang is the Chinese Goddess of Good Weather. She is also known as the Broom Lady. She lives on the Broom Star, Sao Chou, and sweeps the clouds. She sweeps them in when rain is needed and out when it is not. Farmers often hang pictures of brooms on their fences when in need of Sao Ch’ing’s services.
