“Good Morning fellow listeners, this is Greg Fishel your local meteorologist and it’s another beautiful day in the villages.”

“Determining whether the car needs washing may affect your chances of precipitation today as will the possibility of your barbecuing.”

“Weather for tonight will be misty with extremely foggy mist in the north. Isolated showers elsewhere if the temperatures warm. Unseasonable climate will arrive into the north during, or within, some period between now and the distant future, edging into the western fringes by the end ot this week.

“Great God ! This is an awful place.”

  1. Great story. I especially loved the last line, very funny.


  2. That’s as accurate a weather prediction as I’ve ever read! 🙂 Good to see a lighthearted submission. Mine was so bleak.


  3. Dear Danny,

  8. Awesome photograph!!!


  9. I swear this is a description of the weather in the UK.


  10. Hilarious, Danny. It sounds like the weatherman is a confidant of Mother Nature. She must be in a foul mood. 😀 — Suzanne


  11. It certainly rains here every time I plan on going out 🙂


  12. Precision forecasting at its best. 🙂

  13. I can’t make my mind up: is the photo sunrise or sunset?
    Interesting take: well done.


  14. I knew it! Mother Nature is a prankster, who discerns your plans in advance, and adjusts the weather at the precise moment that will irritate you the most! Great story (and a little reminiscent of Carlin’s hippy dippy weather man😀).


  15. Haha! This is about as good as meteorology gets, isn’t it?
