An Over-heated Turban?
Swami is beginning to wonder why he bothered to get the road salt washed off of the yaks today. The local weather men, those perennial prophets of DOOM, are forecasting snow that may equal or exceed the 17" we received on Dec 24, 2004. Other online weather sites say an inch or two. Just to be safe, the weathermen are recommending panic.
Swami noticed that yesterday Susan mentioned that the heater in one of their cars had not been working, but that she fixed it and it was really putting out "HOT HEAT." That is really a coincidence. Just today Swami noticed that the heat in his vehicle had gotten really hot. At first The Swami thought he must have bumped the heater control, but then he realized that the auxiliary heater in his turban had shorted out. Fortunately, there was no serious damage to the turban, al though several nearby buildings nearly burned down. Swami believes that it is possible that his turban may have overheated while he was in deep thought over the term "hot heat." Swami, personally, has not encountered any other type of heat.
The near-zero degree weather the past week or so has forced The Swami to have to go out and top off the yaks' anti-freeze a couple of times. At least it is a little more convenient to do so now that it's possible to keep the boxes of anti-freeze chilled in the fridge.
