Crazy April weather needs a Burrometer, don’t you think?!

April 12, 2013

I’ve been looking through a ton of digital scan files trying to locate what seems to be a needle in a haystack. However, I did run across this gem. I think it is appropriate to post today as the midwest’s weather stays crazy-cold in April.

When Bill was a little boy, he made this (pictured below) official weather forecaster. I guess his weather-predicting talent started way back then. To this day, people from all over call him to pick his brain about short- and long-range forecasts.

On the back side of the burrometer is Bill’s signature. He must have just started learning how to write cursively!
