Sunday's drive up your blog… with Ramblin' Rooster

The official blog of

I Watch the Weather

with 6 comments

This weekend a wintery storm came roaring into my neighborhood. It gave wonderful presents such as rain, sleet, ice and snow. While driving I noticed a sign that read, “Watch for Ice on Bridge”. So I did just that.

I sat up a folding chair and sat next to the bridge and watched for ice.

The ice came and it did find its way to the bridge. I can’t tell if the bridge iced over before the road or not, ’cause my back was turned to the road, (I was watching the bridge remember?).

After the coming of the ice, the trucks with plows followed. Then there was no ice on the bridge.

I got my can of spray paint and edited the sign. It now reads, “Don’t bother Watching for Ice on Bridge, the trucks take care of it.”

Egg On!

The answer to last week’s riddle was “because they’re too lazy to cook”. Scott and fundamentaljelly rack up hash marks in the win column. Way to go fellas. You win 987 packets of mild sauce from Taco Bell.

Tonight’s riddle:

Why do chickens lay eggs?

Submit you’re answer as a comment for the chance to win fabulous make-believe prizes and come back next Sunday for the answer. Good luck!

  1. We’ve got ice on the road here, too. They don’t plow it. They throw gravel on it (no salt for some odd “we don’t want to actually solve the problem” line of thinking) and then the snow comes and they plow the snow off along with the gravel.

    We get to keep the ice. Makes travelling fun in a sort of “Today’s the day I finally snap the drivetrain after hurtling into the ditch” way.

    I do appreciate you watching the bridge. That’s the one place I’ll remember to floor it.

    As for the riddle:

    Because eggs are easy. Like the plow driver’s sister.

    • Capitalist Lion Tamer, dang it, I hate it when you ruin my posts with your knowledge and powerful brain, but I can’t be mad, you make such good points. Time to grab the spray can and fix that sign… again. Watch it with the plow driver’s sister stuff; that’s my wife! Thanks for the great comment.

  2. I am glad that someone is taking these signs literally…excellent job RR.

    Why do chickens lay eggs? Because eggs are fragile or something like that.

  3. This is why we couldn’t let you fade away Rooster. Your mind is an amazing thing! Thank God it only snows once a year here. There are no guardrails (with 5-7 hundred foot drops), falling boulders and elderly, drunken drivers everywhere. This is the first time in my life I’ve actually felt like I needed a seatbelt.

    Riddle; because they have a serious drinking problem, ‘daddy issues’ and the eggs are always around, dressing sluty and mooching cigarettes.

    • Scott Oglesby, that’s my next t-shirt. Seat belts: they save you from 700′ falls off mountains. You and me; we’re gonna save lives!
