It's precipitating again in north Texas. We are going to get our yearly allotment of moisture in the next three months and then see not a drop of rain until January 2008. This means, of course, that until early May, the entire area will be one giant mud bowl.
So. In keeping with this being a homeschooling site and all, I have written a weather related quiz. See how well you do.
- If a minivan accumulates 3.9 pounds of dirt and grime per day, how much dirt will accumulate if the owner does not wash her van until April 1st?
- A dog with three legs tracks into the house 25% less mud than a dog with four legs. True or false?
- A pothole with a diameter of 12 inches grows by 2 inches per day. What model of vehicle will be able to disappear into the pothole after 30 days?
- The additional H2O falling into local lakes will make catfish actually taste edible. True or false?
- How many ounces of hair styling products will TC need to keep from looking like a limp, wet muskrat died on her head?
- 273 pounds. Ten bonus points if you also said, "Throw some seeds on the roof of that sucker and you could have fresh tomatoes by May."
- False. The three legged dog will decide to drink out of the nastiest mud puddle on the driveway and come into the house dripping gritty dirt off her chin and ears.
- Chevy Suburban.
- False. Nothing will ever make catfish taste edible.
- 105 ounces, or 13.12 pounds. Ten bonus points if you correctly pointed out that TC's hair actually looks more like a dead beaver than a muskrat.
80-100%: You obviously live in north Texas. Can you recommend a good styling gel?
60-80%: You have visited north Texas in the late winter/early spring, and you still have the caked-on mud on your shoes to prove it.
40-60%: You can find Texas on a map of the United States, and you're pretty sure that muskrats are brown.
20-40%: You actually like the flavor of catfish. You probably went to public school in Louisiana.
0-20%: You are still trying to figure out what "precipitating" means.
