It was April and the Aboriginals
in a remote part of Northern Australia
asked their new elder if the coming winter
was going to be cold or mild.
Since he was an elder in a modern community he
had never been taught the old secrets.
When he looked at the sky he couldn't tell what the
winter was going to be like. Nevertheless, to be on the safe
side, he told his tribe that the winter was indeed going to
be cold and that the members of the tribe should collect
firewood to be prepared.
But being a practical leader, after several days
he had an idea.
He walked out to the telephone booth on the
highway, called the Bureau of Meteorology and asked,
'Is the coming winter in this area going to be cold?'
The meteorologist responded, 'It looks like this winter
is going to be quite cold.'
So the elder went back to his people and told them to
collect even more wood in order to be prepared.
A week later he called the Bureau of Meteorology again.
'Does it still look like it is going to be a very cold winter?'
The meteorologist again replied,
'Yes, it's going to be a very cold winter.'
The elder again went back to his community and
ordered them to collect every scrap of firewood they could find.
Two weeks later the elder called the Bureau again.
'Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be
very cold?' he asked.
'Absolutely,' the man replied.
'It's looking more and more like it is going to be one of the
coldest winters ever.'
'How can you be so sure?' the elder asked.
The weatherman replied, 'Our satellites have reported that the
Aboriginals in the north are collecting firewood like
crazy, and that's always a sure sign.'
