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


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.



Bill made this when he was a little boy. (Click on image to enlarge.)




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

    Hal and I are howling!!!!!!!! Who would guess how handy Bill’s weather-forecasting talents would become?! Now that we know the science behind Bill’s system, we’ll definitely contact him for future forecasts. 🙂 Perhaps the burrometer should be patented.

    I’m glad you and Hal are howling, Clara. Knowing you are howling makes me think it is even funnier! I wonder how the idea came about for such a … clever … item!

    I totally need one of these. I’d say it looks to be an accurate measure to boot. 🙂

    Mona, yes, I’d say this one would be hard to beat as far as accuracy goes!
