It\'s not easy to kill Rasputin, but in the end
After being stabbed, poisoned, shot and drownedhe died.
On the other hand, the mythical phoenix will never die.
Or rather, it died, but rose from the ashes.
So, which weather line does Verizon look like the most?
Crazy Russian monk or flammable bird?
Your guess is as good as mine.
I have written several times about this line, which has been providing free weather forecasts since the 1930 s.
Just dial 202-936-
1212, you can hear what heaven has prepared for you: the wind, the rain, or the sun.
Here, Verizon announces the weather (
There is another service, time)
No longer in line with the company\'s mission.
A Verizon spokeswoman told me that in smartphones and cable TV, the weather on the phone is \"a remnant of another era \".
But a rally began, with ropes on the gallows. On June 1 —
The day we planned to unplug-
I wrote about probation.
Verizon contacted Keith Allen in Washington last week. C.
Half of the weather servicedozen part-
The time meteorologist recorded the forecast and told him that the service would be closed in a week or two.
\"This is what I don\'t want to hear,\" Keith told me . \".
But this week I learned that at least two entities are interested in taking over this line.
The Washington Post passed, but the Washington Metropolitan government committee has been discussing it with Verizon.
There\'s already an air in COG.
Quality telephone line (202-962-3299).
\"This could be a very neat tie --
Jennifer de Simon at the gear.
\"We want to make sure that citizens in our region are informed of anything that might affect their health.
The question is whether COG can afford it.
Keith may charge Verizon only $800 a month, offering four to five forecasts a day, but the additional cost of the infrastructure is high.
Another possible white knight: Washington
Based in Telecom
It already offers a variety of telephone services, including weather.
Warren Miller of Telecompute says he will sell local ads online to increase costs.
\"My task is to keep this number exactly the same,\" Warren said . \".
Keith said he was confident someone would come forward.
\"There may be a break for a while, but it will fly again,\" he said . \".
\"I promise you. ”Fly again?
Sounds like a phoenix.
But it could also be what Rasputin said before throwing him into the Neva River.
Verizon has closed 703-and 301-
Number, only 202-936-1212 exchange.
Although the system continues to operate, the company retains information that says the service will stop on June 1.
It\'s like Verizon wants to starve to death.
Verizon, of course, has every right to close the phone line.
\"This is a deregulated service,\" said Betty Ann Kane of the District\'s Public Service Council . \".
\"We know it will bring difficulties to some people.
The bottom line is that legally, under the federal or D. , we have no right to take any action on this. C. law.
\"The other day, when I was driving to the Moss Valley camp in Virginia, I noticed that the temperature dropped from 86 degrees to 76 degrees, down 10 degrees.
This is how cold it is.

My neighborhood messaging group has someone posting a \"for sale\" ad for the King
Memory foam mattress size. Wait a minute.
Since the mattress is made of memory foam, wouldn\'t the mattress \"remember\" the person who used to sleep on the mattress?
Oh, the story it can tell. . . .
Why is the mattress ad always showing someone jumping up and down on one side of the bed while resting a glass of red wine calmly on the other side?
Is this a feature that consumers are looking?
Do many people drink in bed?
