Fact Or Fiction?

January 4, 2012

It was October and the Indians on a remote reservation asked their new chief if the coming winter was going to be cold or mild.

Since he became the chief in a modern society, he had never been taught all 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 the members of the village should collect firewood to be prepared.

Now being a practical leader, after several days he got an idea. He went to a phone booth, called the National Weather Service and asked, ” Is the coming winter going to be cold?”

“It looks like the 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 prepare.

Two weeks 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 the 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.

Still apprehensive the chief called the National Weather Service one more time. “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’s going to be one of the coldest winters ever.”

“How can you be so sure?” the chief asked.

The weatherman replied, ” The Indians are collecting firewood like crazy.”
