    A Winter Forecast

    It was October and the Indians on a remote reservation asked their
    new Chief if the coming winter was going to be cold or mild. Since he
    was a Chief in a modern society he had never been taught the old
    secrets. When he looked at the sky he couldn't tell what the winter
    was going to be like. Nevertheless, to be on the safe side he told
    his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the
    members of the village should collect firewood to be prepared. But
    being a practical leader, after several days he got an idea. He went
    to the phone booth, called the National Weather Service and
    asked, "Is the coming winter going to be cold?"

    "It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold," the
    meteorologist at the weather service responded.

    So the Chief went back to his people and told them to collect even
    more firewood in order to be prepared.

    A week later he called the National Weather Service again. "Does it
    still look like it is going to be a very cold winter?"

    "Yes," the man at National Weather Service again replied, "it's going
    to be a very cold winter."

    The Chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect
    every scrap of firewood they could find.

    Two weeks later the Chief called the National Weather Service
    again. "Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very
    cold?"

    "Absolutely," the man replied. "It's looking more and more like it is
    going to be one of the coldest winters ever."

    "How can you be so sure?" the Chief asked.

    The weatherman replied, "The Indians are collecting firewood like
    crazy."
