It has been a weird, weird winter in the Land of Indiana, my friends. We have had rain and snow and ice and sunshine and wind and fog and even thunderboomers!
Well, Weird Winter Weather, the folks at Thorntown Public Library have had enough. We banish you.
My Library Staff amd customers and lunch friends have again celebrated Hoodie Hoo Day. For those of you who are new to my blog, Hoodie Hoo Day is a strange human custom. On February 20, at noon sharp, humans bravely venture outdoors and flap their arms and shout "Hoodie Hoo!" Then, exhausted, they hurry back inside for pink lemonade and cake and ice cream.
Isn't this an intimidating-looking bunch?
If you haven't tried Hoodie Hoo Day in your town, I highly recommend it. Usually Hoodie Hoo Day takes a little while to have an effect. Well, this year after Hoodie-Hooing, I looked up the weather forecast for Thorntown. Check this out:
We did it. We struck fear into the heart of Winter! (I don't know what that Friday nonsense is about. I think we should skip it.)
Now, I'm sure you noticed that I am Missing from the Hoodie Hoo Day Picture. This is because I am an Inside Only, Not to Be Removed from This Library type of Library Cat. After all, if the rest of my staff and customers are outside banishing Winter, who will answer the phones?
Now, I'm going to do something I've never, ever done before. I had AAB Photographer switch her camera to video mode during the Hoodie-Hooing. The act of Hoodie-Hooing has never been caught on film before--at least not in Thorntown.
Brace yourselves. We just saw what this menacing group of Library folks did to Winter. You may want to cover your eyes with your hands--or paws--or have someone sit with you while you watch this video:
You should bookmark this video in case your town doesn't celebrate Hoodie Hoo Day. This way you can play it promptly at noon on February 20, 2013 and maybe my Thorntown gang can help you get rid of your Winter(s) next year!
