You should try the train.
Get the Trans-Siberian, and then ask them to leave on the last left turn.

Caller: Are you closing tomorrow?
Me: No, not that I know of, why?
Caller: Well, it's going down to 28 degrees (Farenheit) tomorrow morning.
Me: ?????????
Me: (deep breath) As of this moment, we are opening tomorrow. Check our website later today; if we were closing we would post it there.

Sometimes a question is not inherently stupid, but it is open to an interpretation that makes it seem stupid. Children are good at this.

Example:

A couple years ago, my wife asked one of my kids (then 3-ish years old) to hand her a pillow. Nate says "No problemo, Mommy", and hands over the item.

We are not really a multi-lingual family, so I asked "No problemo? Where did you hear that?"

He furrows his brow and says "From my mouth...?"

I say "No, I mean, who said it?"

He is incredulous. "I said it!"

I'm a meat cutter.

"When I cooked an eye of round in the slow cooker for 36 hours it was tough, do you know why?"

"What part of the chicken does the ground turkey come from?"

"I'm cooking a meal for 17 people, one of whom is a chronic bed wetter. What kind of roast should I buy?"

That's not that dumb. You certainly cannot recommend the pork roast or rump roast. It's going to have to be the chuck roast because there is no P in it.

Sounds like a nice cool day to me. I might even consider wearing long pants if that were the forecast.

What's wrong with this.

If it's gonna be below freezing and there's any chance of precipitation, it's prudent to call ahead and make sure you'll be open? Of course, if it's that cold and possibly gonna snow, the caller should be at home and not venturing out anyway.

Well, I'm trying to figure out what type of story she's trying to tell.

But, snow in Florida? It's called Ice and we still don't close down, it's Hurricane's we close for and then we have to make up the time in the winter.

Answer: The fact that you think chronic bet wetting is a factor when selecting a roast tells me you are unqualified to operate fire/a stove/a roaster. Get the hell out of here.

I don't want happiness by halves, nor is half of sorrow what I want. Yet there's a pillow I would share, where gently pressed against a cheek like a helpless star, a falling star, a ring glimmers on the finger of a hand.

Now that I have a few years of teaching experience, I have figured out that whenever a teacher says "There's no such thing as a stupid question," that's really just a nice way of saying, "There definitely is such a thing as a stupid question, but answering stupid questions happens to be part of my job description."

Randy, we're in Florida. A low of 28 degrees Farenheit occurs around 4-5am. By 8am, the temperature would be/was on that day already in the 40's. By noon we're in the 60's and near 70.

That's what is wrong. No chance of ice, snow, or anything like bad weather. When our temps get that low, it's AFTER the cold front has passed and it's a cold, but beautifully clear and sunny day.
