NEWSLETTER October 2009
issue of the WEATHERFUN Newsletter
|Welcome fellow Weatherfun members to the October issue of the Weatherfun Newsletter and Jerry's words.|
Weatherwise there is not much to talk about. It really has not been a summer here in Rhode Island. I believe we may have had one day of 90 degrees if that. As you know the hurricane season has been a big bust. We have just not had any storms and those that have come this way have proved to be just rain makers. Forecasters are also calling for a very cold and snowy winter in my and Bill's area. I sure hope this is not true, and it is a mild and a snowless winter. It has however been getting very cool in the morning with temps as low as 40. I know that Eleanor and Dean have seen temps in the 30's already. One thing for Taunton is that it gets very cool in that area, and I always look for their low in the morning and it is always cooler than here in Warren. Time to move more towards Warren folks. As you know I am ready in the firewood department and have plenty to get me through the winter and early spring.
POST: I have a few comments to say about our daily post. I know that we all from time to time get off topic and bring up matters that are not related to weather. This is something that I am even guilty of. All I ask is that you mark it OT and two things that are not allowed in the daily post are talk about religion and politics. I find that one way to make two friends enemies is to talk about politics and religion. We all have different views and this is a good way to get two friends mad at each other. If there is something off topic in these matters it is better to send them to members personal e-mail boxes rather than the list. Thanks for your understanding.
Now that we are looking at the new year coming soon, why not make plans now to keep the second week of July open for the annual Weatherfun Family Reunion. We are now in our 11th year, and this year Blue Hill Observatory will also be celebration an anniversary (Eleanor help me out in how long their anniversary is. Not sure if it is 100 or 150 years old). Eleanor would like for all of us to join her in a visit to the observatory, and even take a look at member Kevin Shaw's original hurricane chart that he made, and maybe even get a copy of it. Also if there is an event that sticks out in your mind that you would like to bring back, please let me know what it is and I will see what we can do about it.
Remember that Fall can still bring some great weather to this area, so although the 80's are probably over for this year, we still have some great weather ahead of us.
Keep in mind that this is your newsletter and if there is an article that you would like to see included in a future issue, why not send it to Bill or I and we will see what we can do about getting it in a future issue.
Until next month enjoy the great weather and fall foliage that is now starting in my area.
