A Good Day to Die
On the morning of December 17, 2003, the website of the National Weather Service posted an especially stressful advisory for Missouri residents:
URGENT-WEATHER MESSAGE: UNUSUALLY HOT WEATHER HAS ENTERED THE REGION FOR DECEMBER...AS THE EARTH HAS LEFT ITS ORBIT AND IS HURTLING TOWARD THE SUN... EXCESSIVE HEAT WATCH IN EFFECT FROM THIS AFTERNOON TO LATE TONIGHT...
UNUSUALLY HOT WEATHER WILL OCCUR FOR AT LEAST THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS AS THE EARTH DRAWS EVER NEARER TO THE SUN. THEREFORE...AN EXCESSIVE HEAT WATCH HAS BEEN POSTED.
The alert turned out to be a test message accidentally posted during a training session; it was removed later in the day and replaced by a correction...and an apology.
Just thought you guys might have needed a little bit of a laugh today. :D Feel free to leave comments below. BTW this came out of Uncle John's Fully Loaded 25th Anniversary Bathroom Reader, page 153. :-O
