The Weather Rock
two weeks of accurate and outstanding weather forecasting for Headquarters
State Area Command at AT 2001, Fort Drum, N.Y., Sgt. Hernando Coy, United
State Property and Fiscal Office, was surprised and somewhat embarrassed
to find that Chief Warrant Officer 4 Harry McCurdy, Department of Logistics,
had discovered his secret. Chief McCurdy had found Sgt. Coy's improvised
weather forecasting system on Division Hill, behind building 2314. The system
consists of a large gray rock suspended from a government issue tripod.
The following written instructions were attached to the tripod:
The Weather Rock Property of SGT H. Coy
Operating Instructions: If it is wet, it's raining; If it is dry, it's clear; If it is white, it's snowing; If it is hot, it's sunny; If you can't see it, it's dark out; If it is swinging, it's windy; And, if it is missing, it's a tornado!
