The Forecast is Bearish
Brown bears in Siberia are wandering around, gnoshing (though they're not really hungry) and walking (though they're usually starting to hibernate). I was surprised when I heard this on the radio, but then it occured to me that they probably don't get to hear too many, "Smile, it's perfectly normal" weather forecasts, thereabouts. So instead, they skip the expert opinions and they obey their senses, these crazy Ursine somnambulists; Shuffling around, snacking when they should be sleeping. Polar bears have it marginally worse, but it's not much of a picnic for either family. Folks, I know a lot of people living this way, too- hope their paths don't cross too soon!
