Aboriginal Tribes and BOM

Members of a tribe in southern 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.

To be on the safe side he told his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that they 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 if the coming winter in that area was going to be a cold one.

The meteorologist responded that the winter would be quite cold, so the elder went back to his people and told them to collect even more wood.

A week later he called the Bureau of Meteorology and was again assured that it would be a very cold winter.

He 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 Aboriginal people in the south are collecting firewood like crazy, and that's always a sure sign."
