January is supposed to be one of the wettest months of the year in this part of Nevada but the precipitation totals last month were dismal, to say the least. So you can emote with the sheer giddiness of the weather people when a series of "storms" lined up out in the northern Pacific. I couldn't help but laugh though, when I got up the other morning and saw all our little buddies out back, undaunted by the not so blizzard like conditions. It reminded me of the scene in Forrest Gump where Gary Sinise is tied to the mast of the shrimp boat during a hurricane. There was Cheeks, doing his impersonation of Lt. Dan, "You call this a storm?" And not to be left out, the woodpecker chimed in, "Blow, you sonofabitch, blow!" Pretty soon, everyone was getting in on the act, even Ginger. Big storm-doo! I have posted my favorite scene from the movie and a song from a USO show with Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan Band. Enjoy.
