Hi everypuppy and everycat. And Jasmine the Goat, too! It's me - Ammy. As many of you know, I am the Chief Meteorologist here at Ao4 HQs and have a mighty keen sense of knowing exactly what our weather is going to be. I have been trying to train Zim for the longest time. He's really pretty good, but he has a bit of a problem focusing. Let's take yesterday, for example...
We had "some weather" blowing in, Dad was out on the golf course, and Mom thought we should check to see how the storm was moving, so we could give him an accurate forecast if he called home. Zim said he was game for the task, so I let him handle it. I was watching out the windows - so here's how it went down.
Here he is, out in the yard.
Zimmie. Not really keeping an eye to the sky.
Umm... the storm is behind him. But he wasn't pulling on the leash, so Mom was able to snap this cool picture of the clouds:
Isn't that pretty? But what is Zim doing? He looks very serious here...
...and like he's studying something very carefully! "Way to go, Zimmie! Is it the clouds? A nose to the wind? A change in temperature? A..." ...wait a minute. He's zeroing in on something. He's...
"Oh, Zimmie! This is no time to commune with your bunny friends!"
"Yeah, I've been hanging out more in your neighbor's yard this season.
They're growing veggies out back. I'll show you where they are."
"Yeah, I've missed you, buddy. Veggies, huh? Cool. I'll just sit here and wait..."
Sigh. Talk about getting distracted! Thankfully, Mom made Zim get up and come home. Honestly! He forgot all about the storm coming and whether we should warn Dad about lightning!
Mom let me come out and make a weather call:
I checked the skies to the north...
...and decided we had about 20 minutes before we would get smacked. Dad probably had 30 where he was. He called in and Mom gave him my prediction and guess what? He was just able to finish 18 holes, get his clubs in the SUV, and get into the vehicle himself before it started pouring rain! And that took about ... 30 minutes. Pretty good, don't you think?
Who's your source for accurate weather forecasting?
Zim needs a bit more training. In a bunny-free zone. Sigh.
Call me if you need any storm casting done for your area!
PS: Before I close, I would like to thank our dear and very handsome friend Ludo for this award:
He said, "Ao4... especially Dave and Zim. They always teach me so much when they post and give me such good advices on life, if ever I has a puzzlement about something they my first place to go." Isn't he so sweet? The boys really appreciate his thoughtfulness and love being able to help where they can! Thank you, Ludo!!!
