When there are tender new plants in the soil that are
fresh from The Artist's green thumb, the expression 'copious amounts of
rain,' though wonderful to read from the National weather Service, does
not settle the soul. The statement continues, "especially across
Southern Kentucky where grounds remain rather saturated." And with
respect to saturated ground, the Poets at the National Weather Service
are correct. The four foot of hole for the Outhouse has three foot
of water in it.
Of my favorites from the National
Weather Service, and this was sometime last year, or maybe three years ago,
is this: "Another danger this afternoon pertains to fire. As dry air pools
in the Ohio Valley, behind the existing aforementioned low....Relative
humidity levels will continue to decline rapidly through this afternoon.
Please be cognizant of any fire related dangers." But I have to think that
those of us who are collectors of prose from the National Weather Service,
if we are to be taken seriously, should start some sort of association, and
offer awards at the annual dinner.
