NEWSLETTER February 2005
|Welcome to the February, 2005 issue of the WEATHERFUN Newsletter|
Your Weatherfun Family
|Greetings fellow Weatherfun members and welcome to the February Weatherfun newsletter. As I always say another month has bit the dust and we are that much closer to spring, flowers blooming, grass growing, and the best part of the year.|
Weather wise as you know most of us in the Northeast has been hit by the Blizzard of 2005. Snow amounts of 18 to 38 inches have been reported with the bulk of the snowfall over Richard's back yard of Cape Cod, Mass. Here in Warren I have received 20 inches, but at T.F.G. airport where the official records are kept they have received 22 inches, so that is what the official amount for the state will go on record. Along with the snow and 8 foot drifts we have also had hurricane force winds. A state of emergency was put into effect for both Rhode Island, and Massachusetts, and some schools did not open for a week. Even as I write this newsletter some sidewalks are still impassable in Rhode Island and nearby Mass. Here we are just over the half way point of winter and we have talk of another storm this weekend, and the talk of another blizzard before the winter is over. Quite the winter of 2005.
The next big event is the mini Weatherfun Reunion to be held in Fla. Feb 18, 19, 20th. Susan and I will be heading to Florida on the 17th of February and will return to Warren on the 21st. We will be taking part in some activities along with other Weatherfun members in the Melbourne Fla. area. Our host for the mini reunion will be Steve, from Viera Fla. Steve will be putting together some activities that we all can attend, along with a dinner of good food, and friendship. If possible why not come on down to Fla. and meet Susan and I and join in the fun of good activities, good food, and great friendship? As the man on TV says: Come on down to Florida for a Weatherfun Mini Reunion, and have a great time.
In closing I would like to again thank all of you for your good words, letters, cards and phone calls on the passing of Weatherfun's official mascot Weather Dog Buffy. Buffy was my very special friend for the past 14.5 years, and a friend of many of you on your visits to our home here in Warren. In Buffy's good days she would be able to let me know when a thunderstorm was approaching from some 20 to 25 miles away. When we brought out our first Weatherfun website she became the official mascot of Weatherfun. She will be deeply missed.
Until our March newsletter stay safe, stay warm, and think spring. We will see some of you in Florida for the mini reunion.
