Letter to Local Weatherman
Dear Channel woof Weather guy,
First of all let me introduce myself. My name is Stephen and I am a 2 year old Golden Doodle. That is right I am a dog my Mom was a Golden Retriever and my dad was a black standard poodle. I never meet my dad and my Mom left when I was 7 weeks old. Don’t feel bad for me though my life has been pretty good. When I was 9 weeks old I was adopted by my A and my R, that is what I call the people who feed me, they are very nice and take good care of me.
At this point I am sure you are wondering why you are getting email from a dog. Well as you probably know dogs do not have opposable thumbs. This means we can not open doors on our own. This creates a situation where I am stuck inside watching TV while my A and R go to work to make the money. I have been watching you on TV and I am very impressed by all you know about weather. You have to be the best TV weather guy out there and I think maybe you can help me.
Recently I have been doing some research into thunder. Many dogs are afraid of thunder. I personally am not afraid but, I have a friend who is. I am trying to learn as much as I can about thunder to make it less scary for my friend. Hiding under the couch is really not working out for him so I have been conducting some experiments.
Last week when it was 8 degrees outside, I opened all the windows in the main part of the house and turned on the AC. I got it down to about 20 degrees in the house. After I did this I went into the master bedroom and shut the door. (I can open and close that door with my head, no opposable thumbs needed) I turned the heat in the Master bedroom up to 90 and started the shower in the master bath. After about an hour the Master Bedroom was 90 degrees and full or stream while the rest of the house was a cool 20 degrees.
Knowing that thunder is caused my warm and cold air masses colliding I assumed when I opened the bedroom door the two air masses would collide and create an indoor thunderstorm. Don’t worry I took safety precautions and cleaned out under the couch in advance. When I opened the door not much happened. The steam kind of swirled around and some of it condensed on the walls but no thunder. I did not even get any rain or snow.
Can you explain why this did not work? I know you have far more experience with weather than I do and I need some guidance. What am I missing here? I assumed I would have gotten at least some sort of indoor weather event.
I would really like to learn more about weather. Based on my past experiences they will probably not let a dog into weather school so I am asking you for help. Do you happen to know if I can make snow with a Vaporizer? Which vaporizer makes the best snow? I bet you got to do some fun labs in weather school.
Would is be possible to get an autographed Photo?
Stephen the Dog
