Funny Weather Forecast

One day in early September the chief of a Native American tribe was asked by his tribal elders if the winter of 20010/11 was going to be cold or mild.  The chief asked his medicine man, but he too had lost touch with the reading signs from the natural world around the Great Lakes.

In truth, neither of them had idea about how to predict the coming winter.  However, the chief decided to take a modern approach, and the chief rang the National Weather Service in Gaylord Michigan.How Indian Chief Forecast a Cold Winter

'Yes, it is going to be a cold winter,' the meteorological officer told the chief.  Consequently, he went back to his tribe and told the men to collect plenty of firewood.

A fortnight later the chief called the Weather Service and asked for an update. 'Are you still forecasting a cold winter?' he asked.

'Yes, very cold', the weather officer told him.

As a result of this brief conversation the chief went back to the tribe and told his people to collect every bit of wood they could find.

A month later the chief called the National Weather Service once more and asked about the coming winter. 'Yes,' he was told, 'it is going to be one of the coldest winters ever.'

'How can you be so sure?' the chief asked.

The weatherman replied: 'Because the Native Americans of the Great Lakes are collecting wood like crazy.' 

Britons Spend Six Months of their Lives Discussing Weather Funny Climate Stories

Weather-obsessed British people spend on average six months of their lives talking about whether it's going to rain or shine, according to a survey published recently.

Speculation about whether it's going to be wet, complaints about the cold and murmurings about the heat are also the first points of conversation with strangers or colleagues for 58% of Britons, it recorded.  The study of 2,018 adults by pollsters found Britons talk about the weather for about 2 days [49 hours] every year and the subject comes up more often than work, what is on television, sport or gossip.

19% of over 65s questioned also believe they can predict the weather as well as a professional weatherman.

The most usual explanation for the British fascination with weather is that it is so changeable here say Will and Guy; although this does not explain why other meteorogically-challenged countries do not appear to be similarly interested.

Guy could not see the hand on the right, Will then told me to look for the large thumb to the right.

Funny Tall Tornado Tale

In the state of Kansas, USA, tornadoes often hit with sudden devastation and without warning.

One case, brought to Will and Guy's notice, involved a house which was completely whisked away, leaving only the foundation and first floor.

A silver-haired farm lady, Mrs Rhona Seibert, was seen sitting dazed, in a bathtub, the only remaining part of the house left above the floor. The rescue squad rushed to her aid and found her unhurt.

Mrs Seibert was just sitting there in the tub, talking to herself. 'It was the most amazing thing ... it was the most amazing thing.' she kept repeating dazedly.

'What was the most amazing thing, Ma' am?' asked one of the rescuers.

'I was visiting my daughter here, taking a bath, and all I did was pull the plug and dog-gone-it if the whole house didn't suddenly drain away.'Weather Joker

Amusing and Droll Weather Forecaster Story

Although he was a qualified meteorologist, Howard Sherlock ran up a terrible record of forecasting for the TV news programmes. He became something of a local joke when the Western Echo newspaper began keeping a record of his predictions and showed that he'd been wrong almost three hundred times in a single year.

Obviously that kind of notoriety was enough to get him fired.

Howard Sherlock moved to another part of the country and applied for a similar job. One blank on the job application called for the reason for leaving his previous position.

Sherlock wrote, 'The climate didn't agree with me.'

WEATHER THE WEATHER

Whether the weather be fine
Or whether the weather be not,
Whether the weather be cold
Or whether the weather be hot,
We'll weather the weather
Whatever the weather,
Whether we like it or not.

Crazy British Drivers in the Snow Crazy British drivers in the snow

On the rare occasions that we do get snow in the UK all the drivers go crazy.  You will see cars sliding here, slewing there, not even the pavements are safe. 

I was talking with Sven, a Norwegian, and asking why Scandinavian drivers are so safe and so good and rally driving in the ice.  He told me, 'Guy, we are all just as crazy as you Brits for a week, then we get used to the snowy conditions and drive with soft feet and gentle hands'.

Turkey Weather Report

Here is Will and Guy's climate report for Thanksgiving Day in general, and for turkeys in particular.

Early Morning Thanksgiving Day
The temperature of turkeys will gradually rise throughout Thanksgiving day.  However, at dawn when the birds stare at the frost in their chiller compartment, the ambient temperature may only be 10°F.

By 10 o'clock the turkeys will start to thaw as they see the light of day.  At about 11 o'clock a warm Chinook wind from the fan oven will raise their temperature rapidly to 200°F.

Mid-day HeatFunny Turkey Weather Report
By 12 o'clock the cook's temperature may well reach fever levels.  Furthermore, you may also notice an increase in humidity especially in the kitchen.  In these turbulent conditions, Moms may be surrounded by an area of high wind-chill, the result maybe a cold shoulder for you.  Beware, pestering one's mother too much may lead to a tornado in the kitchen. 

Afternoon Forecast
By about 2:30 pm the warm weather condition will have stabilized, and as a result the turkey will have tanned nicely.  Now a steel carving knife will cut across the bird's flanks, and slices of turkey will descend on the guests' plates.

A precipitation of cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes will make the plates slippery.  You may also experience a gentle drizzle from the gravy boat.  This should also be accompanied by a heavy fall of a lighter liquid into your wine glass.

Evening Rumble of Thunder
Pressure may increase drastically around the waist band, consequently, storm warnings have been issued about indigestion.  The evening will see the turkey diminishing to leftovers that can then be distributed to all the guests.  As the day draws to a close you may experience turbulent conditions in the stomach.  Good news, the outlook is that by the weekend the rumble of thunder in the intestine will pass.

Monday Blues
There's a technical term for a sunny, warm day which follows two rainy days.  It's called Monday.

British Summer Time
Summer in the UK usually:
Hallo, did you have a good Summer?
Yes indeed, we had a great barbeque that afternoon.

Nightmares?
One summer evening during a violent thunderstorm a mother was tucking her small boy into bed. She was about to turn off the light when he asked with a tremor in his voice, 'Mummy, will you sleep with me tonight?' The mother smiled and gave him a reassuring hug. 'I can't dear, 'she said. 'I have to sleep in Daddy's room.'

A long silence was broken at last by a shaken little voice saying, 'The big sissy.'
