Response to DainBramaged (Original post)

Wed Jan 29, 2014, 04:55 PM

28. I grew up in Maine.

Several years ago we had a Meterologist on one of the local channels who would report the weather for Hannibal's Crossing, Maine (always an extremely outrageous report) and it was always a kind of running gag. One year my uncle from Oklahoma and another attorney from Texas came up to monitor a court case for Oklahoma and Texas in the month of January. My parents invited them over to the house and then took them out to dinner. They were watching the weather report when all of a sudden one of them (I can't remember which one now) sat up and said "Wow, did you see the temperature for Hannibal's Crossing? It is like 60 below zero (or something like that). My parents and I just broke out laughing and had to tell them that it was a fake weather report.
