Whither Weather?
5.12.2003 by Dan, every Monday.


Well, it's been an exciting week for me, with the severe weather, munchkins, the Wicked Witch of the West, and Bill Paxton. Oh, the laughs we had when Mr. Paxton drove his pickup into the Wizard. Then Helen Hunt showed up.

But during all of this hectic and zany windblown excitement, I maintained a journal of my thoughts, feelings, and dietary choices, and have made this column out of them for your reading pleasure. Enjoy, and remember; No matter how bad the weather gets, at least you're not a penguin. Stupid flightless waterfowl.
