Welcome to the January issue of the WEATHERFUN Newsletter

Words From Jerry
Greetings Weatherfun members, and welcome to the first edition of the Weatherfun Newsletter for the year of 2003.

Here we are the beginning of a brand new year, and the 5th year of Weatherfun. The year of 2002 has been a great year. We made a lot of progress in the year of 2002, and I know that the new year will bring even more progress.
We have our new website, and thanks to our webmaster Richard Foreman, our website is doing just great. Richard has done a great job with our website and we all should be very proud of it. I would however like to see a little more members participation in this new year. It is a great site, but we need more participation from our members.
How about posting a picture of yourself in our members section? Also how about more weather related websites from your state. It would be great to see a weather site from each state that we have members in.
I am trying to get an accurate count of how many states that we have members in. It now looks like we have members in 30+ states, including Hawaii. Let's see if we can make all 50 states in the year of 2003? I for one think that we can do it, with the help of each member.
We now have 10 members weather lines on our toll free number. Let's see if we can get a member weather line from all of the states that we have a Weatherfun members in. I challenge you too see if we can do this. I, for one, think that we can.
We had our first Weatherfun reunion in the year of 2002. Everyone that attended had a ball. Susan and I and our family enjoyed very much having all of you, not only in our state of Rhode Island, but also at our home. Onward to Weatherfun Reunion number 2 in the year of 2003.
We have a great group here folks, and I know that in the year of 2003 we can make it an even better group. But, remember we need your help to accomplish this. You have supported us in the past four years, and I know that you will also support us in our 5th year, during the year of 2003.

Susan and I would like to wish all of you a very HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR.
