Quite a few readers asked about that Chinook Arch in yesterday's
picture. That arch reaches from the Trans Canada Highway all
along the eastern side of the Rockies down into Montana. When 
people see the arch,  they know it's time to gather up any loose
stuff, because it is going to get windy shortly. 
Chinook is on the way!

The Chinook starts out in the South Sea Islands, loads up with 
water, goes over Hawaii and heats up, picks up more water on
the way to the mainland. There it dumps it onto the rain forests
in Washington and BC, and winds up quite dry when it goes
ove the top of the Rockies. Also quite warm from absorbing
all the condensation calories. 

Because air flows like to follow contours, part of it then dives 
down to the foothills. There it picks up moisture, dries the 
grain and the hay, and bounces back up high, hitting cool air 
and forms the arch. The part of the Chinook, that did not dive,
blows the clouds eastward across the prairies, but because 
there is always fresh air bouncing up from the foothills, the
arch appears to be a stationary fixture, where the clouds are 
created and dispatched eastward.

On the ground, the Chinook is a warm, dry wind that picks up 
the leaves in the fall and hauls them eastward. In some areas,
like Pincher Creek, where the big windmill farms are, it often
reaches hurricane speeds and knocks over semis and RVs.
Car ports are not a good idea in this area.

Glider pilots love the Chinook and they ride the elevators,
where it bounces up from the foothills, then surf the crest.
They soar at altitudes where they need oxygen for hours
and only dive down when their oxygen bottles run empty.

After the chinook travels across a few thousand miles of
prairie it has loaded up with moisture again, and people in
the East call it "The Albertan". When it mixes with cold air
from the Atlantic and the Great Lakes, it dumps onto Toronto
and Chicago. If you see the arch here, don't go to those 

From there occasionally it travels south and brings cool air
down to Florida.

Have FUN!

A young mother finds out she is pregnant again, and she tells the good news to anyone who will listen. One day when the woman and the boy are out shopping, a friend of the mother asks the little boy if he was excited about the new baby. "Oh, yes!" the little tyke says. And having overheard some of his parents' private conversations, he adds, "And I know what we are going to name it, too. If it's a girl we're going to call it Mary, and if it's another boy we're going to call it Quits."
While John and Jill were shopping at a mall, a shapely young woman in a short form-fitting dress strolled by... Johns eyes followed her. Without looking up from the item Jill was examining, Jill asked, "Was it worth the trouble you're in now?"

The District Attorney stared at the jury, unable to believe its verdict. Bitterly he asked, "What possible excuse could you have for acquitting this man?" The foreman answered, "Insanity." The D.A. said, "All twelve of you?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD and goes to Jose Parada, 23 in Pico Rivera, California Burglar found after fall through ceiling PICO RIVERA, Calif. (AP) - A man fell through the ceiling of a Pico Rivera shop on Saturday, landing in the arms of sheriff's deputies who were searching for the suspected burglar of three businesses. The Whittier Daily News reports that 23-year-old Jose Parada has been booked on suspicion of burglary after Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies responded to a burglar alarm at William's Boots at 7 a.m. County sheriff Sgt. Debbie Gallego says a responding deputy saw someone inside nearby De La Cruz Jewelry, and called in a K-9 unit for a search. Deputies sprayed pepper spray in the attic of the store shortly before Parada fell through the ceiling. A nearby antique store was also burglarized. Parada is being held in lieu of $20,5000 bail. His arraignment is scheduled for Tuesday.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: DJ Re: E-Course too good to be true? Dear Webby, have you checked out "get zero cost "? is it legit. it has that to good to be true ring to it Dear DJ He tells you off the bat, that YOU probably won't make that much a month, not initially, for sure, and quite possibly not ever. It is the same as when, for example, somebody buys a golf book by Arnold Palmer. It would not be realistic to expect them to win a bunch of international tournaments in a year, but quite likely, with what they learn, they will beat their boss and their neighbor in the very near future. The more of the lessons from that book, that you implement and actually use, the closer you will get to what he makes. It is not a magic pill, that does it all for you, without your participation. You have to actually DO what you learn. If you only make $500 every month with what you actually do, it may be pathetic compared to what that guy makes now, but it is $500 more than you would make without reading his lessons and implementing at least some little bit of what you learn. Even if you don't get serious and just read it for entertainment, some information will stick, and if nothing else, will help you avoid some mistakes. That alone will be worth a lot more than the cost of the book. Have FUN! DearWebby

After spending 3-1/2 hours enduring the long lines, surly clerks and insane regulations at the department of motor vehicles, a lady stopped at a toy store to pick up a gift for her son. She brought her selection - a baseball bat to the cash register. "Cash or charge," the clerk asked. "Cash," she snapped. Then apologizing for her rudeness, she explained, " I've spent the afternoon at the motor-vehicle bureau. I am not too sane right now!!" "Shall I gift -wrap the bat?" the clerk asked sweetly, "Or or you going back?"
