We Got Some Snow


The television news said that yesterday's snow fall was 15 inches here in Idiotville. I'm going to use that as the official count because I suspect it's more scientific than my method, which is to measure it with a beer:

As you can see, the snow last night was several inches taller than a Sam Adams. Of course, the snow was still falling at that point and I was using the snow on top of the hot tub as my gauge. I think there may be some problems with my method. No wonder the news people never call me back when I offer to be a Junior Weatherman.


So, here in Idiotville, we're enjoying a winter wonderland. Actually, no, we're not ALL enjoying it. Fluffy X, as he is now known, held another press conference to declare that if this winter thing continues, he will have to kill us all. (To read about Fluffy X's first press conference, the one in which he cast off his slave name, go here).

Personally, I think he's bluffing.

LOL! I do like your emthod of weathercasting Village Idiot!
Much more fun and interesting! ;-)

I'm thinking Fluffy X isn't looking all that happy about the Winter Wonderland that is Idiotville! But Fluffy X looks so beautiful against the stark whiteness of the snow! Just lovely...

The world would be a much better place if all weathermen measured snowfall with beer!

Yeah, we got some snow too but we only got about a scotch and seven's worth. I'm thinking perhaps you should reconsider taking Fluffy X more seriously; he looks like he means business.
