    When the guy with the map says it’s going to rain, it doesn’t because I live in Arizona.

    Alice standing on the molding to get high enough is a realistic detail. I do that all the time. (Also climb on shelves at the supermarket, as all the desirable goods are too high up and/or too far back for self-service.)

    The dude with the map on the TV is usually wrong as often as he is right Kevin! Then again if you see Jim Cantori of the Weather Channel in you hometown on TV and you live on the coast, watch out, means a tropical system, likely a hurricane is lurking and your hometown is in the “cone of uncertainty”. Good chance the storm misses (though near misses can still cause tons of damage) but people really do not like seeing that dude roll into town…..

    Kevin is, from a four year old’s perspective, right. Unfortunately, the only person who controls that guy is that guy. That’s why the ice cube is so appealing. It gives the flush-er the illusion of influence over the future.

    The buckethead is now the seer! Alice needs a dose of humility.

    I go for the sympathetic magic method

    Pour water on the ground and look to the sky then say “I have made the ground wet here, now you do it everywhere ok?”

    It works about as well as flushing ice cubes

    They panic and hide under the desk while pointing at the radar map if it is a tornado or hurricane except for the new hire that has to go and chase it in the SUV.

    In Massachusetts, every little flurry is now treated like the Blizzard of 78. Not by the forecasters, but the people who rush to the supermarket to buy their perishables in case the power goes out, or they are stranded in the wilderness of suburbia for a whole day. And I want to know, what did they do with the shovel they bought last year?

    Lived on an island in the Pacific for awhile. Quite a few typhoons. Somebody told me to watch the weather lady on local TV. If the typhoon threat was really serious, she wore more makeup.

    The weather babe hotties on the local Los Angeles stations are way too distracting. I never know what they’re pretending to forecast.

    You know it’s going to be a major snow storm if the TP aisle is sold out.

    What about the guy who draws on the map with magic marker? Yeah, we’re glad he’s gone.

    If flushing ice cubes makes it snow, I’d hate to think what the weather is usually like in that town.

    The kids here must have flushed a bucket of ice cubes. Quite the blizzard here.

    Richard was probably thinking of Bob Ryan, whom he frequently mentioned at his Poor Almanac.

    Alice’s theory must be correct; all through my life the things I flush seem to fall upon me…

    Good thing I stocked up last week. We have 5 or 6 inches of snow so far, with another 5 or 6 before it’s over. I’ve already cancelled my dental cleaning for tomorrow.

    Our first serious snow of the season (6-9 inches) was supposed to begin around 4:00 PM; now, closing in on 7:00 PM, it is only slowly beginning to cover the street on which I live. Never believe the weather forecast without a bit of skepticism….

    Here they are predicting anywhere from 2- 10 inches, of rain.
