Weather forecasting

Recommended Posts

It was autumn, and the Indians on the remote reservation asked their new Chief
if the winter was going to be cold or mild. Since he was a new Indian Chief in a
modern society, he had never been taught the old secrets, and when he looked at
the sky, he couldn't tell what the weather was going to be. Nevertheless, to be
on the safe side, he replied to his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be
cold and that the members of the village should collect wood to be prepared. But
also being a practical leader, after several days he got an idea.

He went to the phone booth, called the National Weather Service and asked, "Is the coming winter going to be cold?"

"It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold indeed," the meteorologist at the weather service responded.

So the Chief went back to his people and told them to collect even more wood in order to be prepared. A week later he called the National Weather Service again.

"Is it going to be a very cold winter?"

"Yes," the man at National Weather Service again replied, "it's going to be a very cold winter."

The Chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect every scrap of
wood they could find. Two weeks later he called the National Weather Service
again.

"Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?"

"Absolutely," the man replied. "It's going to be one of the coldest winters
ever."

"How can you be so sure?" the Chief asked.

The weatherman replied, "The Indians are collecting wood like crazy!"

I thought for one minute you were going to say that the Indians were collecting wood to build an ark because they knew that if the Nat Weather people said something it would probably turn out to be the opposite :lol: .
