Old Farmer Scott

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha, Frank, Billy and Scott.

Subject: 6th Floor Blog Almanac

It’s cold again.” Sara notes, as Sara, Ann, Tabitha and Frank return from a walk outside.  Billy and Scott are playing NHL 10 on the PS3, and Frank goes to shower.

From Pictures

Not as cold as last week.  Maybe we’ll have a little more warm weather before winter sets in..”  Tabitha muses.

After the rain passes, it’s supposed to be semi-nice again actually.” Billy says.

Good being relative to if you like rain or not.”  Ann says.

“Doesn’t mean it’ll stay nice.    I’m predicting a harsh, cold winter.”  Scott says.

You are?  I’ve always wondered who the ‘Old Farmer’ is with the almanac.  It’s you Scott!” Ann exclaims.

Actually, the Old Farmer’s Almanac does predict an above average snowfall this year.  Probably some for Thanksgiving as well.”  Billy says.

I’m thinking we get a white Christmas this year.” Sara predicts.

That would be nice.” Ann says.

“However, for as cold as the winter will be, summer will come early.  It’ll be blistering hot at times.”  Scott predicts.

Would you like to wager on these predictions, oh farmer Scott?” Billy asks.

“Sure.  Let’s say $50.  Payable next summer.”  Scott says.  “Sara can be judge.”

Judge?  This predictions are rather arbitrary.  You said it’s going to be a harsh, cold winter, and that summer will come early with blistering days.  Fine.  I’ll judge it, but we’re going by my standards.” Sara says.

So what do we classify as harsh, cold winter?  At least three days where the temperature drops near 0?” Ann asks.

Yes.  And it has to snow well, at least three times.  And by well I mean I have to still be able to make a snowball two days later.” Sara says.

And not out of the black snow that gets piles on the curbs.”  Ann clarifies.

Okay. For summer.  Blistering heat.  Those are the days that you feel like you’re going to melt on the subway platform.  When people are applying sunscreen to go out for lunch, when you see pedestrians with umbrellas to block the sun.”  Sara explains.

He said early as well.  I classify early as meaning I’ll have a craving for a frosty root beer float before April Fools Day.”  Ann says.

Excellent.  What do you say guys?  Those terms acceptable?” Sara asks.

“Perfect.”  Scott says, as he and Billy shake on it.

Snow Storm

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha, Frank, Billy and Scott.

Subject: Snow Storm

I think the snow is out to get me.” Scott announces as he shows up at Catalina’s to meet everyone for dinner.

Scott drapes his snow-laden jacket over the back of the chair and sits.

Every direction I turned, the snow was coming right at me!”

Yeah. It’s a little rough out there today.”

I’m glad we decided on Catalina’s and not somewhere else. I’m freezing just from walking this short distance from the 6th Floor.”

It’s not as cold as it could be, but it’s hard to see more than 10 feet in front of you.”

I almost feel bad for the tourists. All the street signs are plastered with snow; it’s hard to know where you’re going.”

Getting lost in New York and seeing new and exciting things is a rite of passage.”

Rite of passage? I don’t know if I’d agree with that assessment.”

Well, at least they’ll be able to run home confirming that New York in the winter is a weather disaster and a frigid uninhabitable nightmare.”

That’s blown out of proportion. It’s not like New York is Maine. Sure we get some nasty, ice-cold days, but I think tourists lump us in with Upstate New York and ‘New England Winters’ too much.”

I prefer this to some of those sticky, 100 degree summer days.”

The city smells better in the winter.”

Hard to argue that one. Ignoring the occasional syrup smell anyway.”
