The unidentified protester stood in front of the Hydro-Meteorological Center Friday holding a sign that read  `Let Summer Come Faster` as unusually cold weather lingered into April."

After the swimming trunks- clad protestor demonstrated outside the Hydro-Meteorological Center, the deputy director of the center issued the following statement: Temperatures will be positive and everything will thaw fast.

Desperate times call for desperate measures " winter has overstayed its welcome in the South, and I am contemplating donning a pair of Speedos and protesting outside the studios of the Weather Channel.

After the hapless employees of the Weather Channel get a gander at me wearing Speedos, I`m persuaded they will quickly read an on-air statement: Our long national nightmare is finally over!
