Cold Winter

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 was a
Chief in a modern society he had never been taught 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 that the members of the village should
collect firewood to be prepared. But being a practical leader, after
several days he got an idea. He went to the phone booth, called the
National Weather Service and asked, "Is the coming winter going to be cold?"

"It looks like this 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 be prepared. A week 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 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. Two weeks later the Chief called
the National Weather Service again. "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 is
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."
