Chapter 11, Page 24 Weather

Minnesota weather is fickle.

Well, I feel stupid. I had this ready to go last week but totally forgot. *facepalm*

Oh well. Next is Chapter 12. If I just remember to color the title page.

Try New England. :P

Where if you don't like the weather, you can wait five minutes. And weathermen don't know their forecasts from a window in the wall. ;)

@Robert: We have the same saying about Minnesota weather. The first part, anyway. The 'window in the wall' one is new to me. lol

We have that saying in Michigan, too. :)

Brigid said...

@Zach: Perhaps it's a Mid-West/New England thing. And they call this the 'temperate zone.' HA!

We have the same saying in Colorado. I'm kind of beginning to think that it's a universal saying, and that folks everywhere just like to think that they created it to refer specifically to their part of the country.

On a related note, we had our first snow of the season just this past Tuesday (only about two months late; usually the first snow falls in September, even if it doesn't stick that early).

Brigid said...

@Dan: That is quite possible. Hmm. We had our first snow a few weeks ago, not that it stuck around more than a day. We've had rain since then, but we're supposed to have snow tonight. Maybe. Possibly. (plays darts)

I do have a tendency to mangle quotes, Brigid. ^^; I think I was referring to the New England belief that weathermen can't accurately tell the weather even if they look out the window to see it's raining when all their forecasts state it's clear out. Or somesuch.

@Robert: Makes sense. Course, with the way the weather is around here, they might have a better chance of making an accurate forecast by playing darts blindfolded.
