Snow Skills

I’ve been starting to do some “humorous monologue” events in small theaters where I just come out and ramble with stories and such, do a little reading from the books, maybe sing a song, and perform a breathtaking dance, but mostly just tell stories.

I have a ten-minute section in the current monologue about how those of us in snow country pick up certain arcane skills and knowledge as a result of freezing our hinders over the years.  How we can judge the temperature just by how little the pine needles are wiggling in the wind, how we can improve the output of our heaters with nothing more than three zip-ties and the flattened cardboard from a 24-pack of Old Milwaukee, that sort of thing.

So this was fun to read.  Funnily enough, the first commenter used material straight from my monologue…
