Cold Winter

  1. Subject: South Dakota Weather Forecasting

    IT WAS ALREADY LATE FALL AND THE INDIANS ON A REMOTE RESERVATION IN SOUTH
    DAKOTA ASKED THEIR NEW CHIEF IF THE COMING WINTER WAS GOING TO BE COLD OR
    MILD. SINCE HE WAS A CHIEF IN A MODERN SOCIETY HE HAD NEVER BEEN TAUGHT THE

    OLD SECRETS. WHEN HE LOOKED AT THE SKY HE COULDN'T TELL WHAT THE WINTER WAS
    GOING TO BE LIKE. NEVERTHELESS, TO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE, HE TOLD HIS TRIBE
    THAT THE WINTER WAS INDEED GOING TO BE COLD AND THAT THE MEMBERS OF THE
    VILLAGE SHOULD COLLECT FIREWOOD TO BE PREPARED.

    BUT 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,' THE METEOROLOGIST AT
    THE WEATHER SERVICE RESPONDED, SO THE CHIEF WENT BACK TO HIS PEOPLE AND TOLD

    THEM TO COLLECT EVEN MORE FIREWOOD IN ORDER TO BE PREPARED.

    A WEEK LATER HE CALLED THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE AGAIN. 'DOES IT STILL
    LOOK LIKE IT IS 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 FIREWOOD THEY COULD FIND.

    TWO WEEKS LATER THE CHIEF 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 LOOKING MORE AND MORE LIKE IT IS GOING
    TO BE ONE OF THE COLDEST WINTERS WE'VE EVER SEEN.'

    'HOW CAN YOU BE SO SURE?' THE CHIEF ASKED.

    THE WEATHERMAN REPLIED, 'THE INDIANS ARE COLLECTING FIREWOOD LIKE CRAZY.'
