WEATHER ALERT: Ice Age Warning Issued For All Of Maine

ice ageThe National Weather Center has just issued an Ice Age Warning for the entire state of Maine, Modern Philosophers!

According to the advisory, this alert is in effect for the entire weekend and possibly the next 300 – 500 years.  Maine residents are advised to stay calm, not make a mad dash for the I-95 in their vehicles, and to put on some nice clothes so that when their frozen bodies are discovered in blocks of ice centuries from now, they will look good in the photographs taken of the event.

I’m a Modern Philosopher, not a Meteorologist, so I called my friend Stormy McBlizzardton, the Accu-Weather guy over at Channel 6 News in Bangor, to ask him exactly what an Ice Age Warning was and how it might affect me.

Since Stormy couldn’t give me a definitive answer, I turned to the next best source of information: the internet.

According to my research, Modern Philosophers, Mainers are about to either be turned into adorable cartoon characters voiced by Ray Roman, Denis Leary, Cedric the Entertainer, and John Leguizamo, or we are about to be encased in icy tombs and then covered over in tons of snow.

I’m still a cynical New Yorker at heart, so I’m just going to ignore this warning, go about my life at The House on the Hill, and see what happens.  If it gets too cold, I’ll just hop on Gary the Gargoyle’s back and have him fly me someplace tropical.

Stay warm, Modern Philosophers!  Remember what happened to those poor Wooly Mammoths!

  1. I slept in today until about 8 AM. It was Minus 2 F. We have warmed all the way up to 6 ABOVE Zero as of Noon EST.

    A foot of snow or more is on the way.

    Not to mention the Ice Age.

    Does Gary the Gargoyle have a passenger seat?

  2. 1wanderingtruthseeker says:

    Are they sold out of long underwear and cozy socks yet?

  3. If the mammoths were underdressed for the cold, what hope do we have?!

  4. How many wooly mammoths can stand on the end of a pin? And, how long can they stand there in this cold weather?
