Thanksgiving at the Hayes Household

My Oldest Grandbaby, James

Thanksgiving Weather Forecast At the Hayes Household

Turkeys will thaw in the morning, then warm in the
oven to an afternoon high near 190F. The kitchen will
turn hot and humid, and if you bother the cheffy or
worse yet, Poppa Hayes, be ready for a severe squall,
cold shoulder, and the more than likely personality
flare-up with discouraging words such as “Get the ****
outta my kitchen!”

During the late afternoon and evening, the cold front
of a large and intimidating knife will slice through
the turkey, causing an accumulation of one to two
inches on plates accompanied by a lot of mashed
potatoes drifting across northern regions while
cranberry sauce creates slippery spots in other areas.
The gravy should finish passing by mid-meal.

A weight watch and indigestion warning have been
issued for the entire area, with increased stuffiness
around the beltway. Smoky foyers, along with back
porches in some regions is inevitable. Alcohol
consumption should be expected. During the evening,
the turkey will diminish and taper off to leftovers,
dropping to a low of 34F in the refrigerator.

Looking ahead to Friday and Saturday, high pressure to
eat sandwiches will be established. Flurries of
leftovers can be expected both days with a 50 percent
chance of scattered soup late in the day. We expect a
warming trend where soup develops. By early next week,
eating pressure will be low as the only wish left will
be the bone. Happy Thanksgiving Everybody.
