I have in on good authority that we will have a severe winter.  Recently a young Indian, just after graduating from college, was named chief of his tribe.  Traditionally the chief was always the spiritual leader of the tribe, but traditionally as well, the chief was always a wise elder.  The new young chief was ill prepared.
     Soon many members of the tribe approached him and asked how severe the winter would be.  He promised to fast and ponder the subject.
     Missing lunch provided no visions, so the young chief called the National Weather Service.  They told him that they expected a severe winter.  He returned to his tribe to inform them that there would be a severe winter and that they should gather up extra fire wood ... and they did.
     Just to be thorough, the young chief once again called the National Weather Service two weeks later to find out if they were sticking with their forecast.  They told him that winter was going to be even worse than they expected.  He returned to his tribe to inform them that there would be an even more severe winter and that they should gather up even more fire wood ... and they did.
     The young chief, being nervous about his responsibility, once again called the National Weather Service two weeks later to find out if they were still sticking with their forecast.  They told him that winter was going to be even worse yet.  They said it could be the coldest winter on record.  He returned to his tribe to inform them that there would be a record cold winter and that they should gather up even more fire wood ... and they did.
     The young chief once again called the National Weather Service two weeks later to find out if they were still sticking with their forecast.  They told him that winter was going cold beyond what anyone could imagine ... far colder than any record.  The young chief asked how they knew it was going to be so cold.  They answered, "Because the Indians are gathering up all of the firewood there is."
