THE

WEATHERFUN

NEWSLETTER

MARCH

2002

Welcome to the March Issue of the WEATHERFUN Newsletter. March, the month of St Patrick's Day, corned beef & cabbage, and, of course, Spring.


Words From Jerry
Hello folks, and welcome to the second issue of the Weatherfun Newsletter.
Well, the one big question on everyone's mind is where is winter, and how did Jerry get away with getting Old Man winter, to be nice to all of us? 

Sorry folks I cannot take the credit for this mild, snowless winter, but I wish I could. Seriously here we are the beginning of March and no big snowstorms have effected us. But, please keep in mind folks that this is March, and March can be noted for some real wild winter weather, and of course the March winds. We cannot let our guard down as of yet folks, and as Bill says, the fat lady has not sung as of yet. Also we folks up here in the northeast, must also keep in mind the April Fools Day snowstorm of a few years back. That was a tough one.

The fact of the matter though folks is that winter is running out of time. March 20th. is the first day of spring, and April 1st. is the opening day for the Boston Red Sox. So how bad can it get? Bill is even helping with his count down to spring clock so, let's THINK SPRING. Flowers are starting to come out of the ground, and animals that have been in hiding are starting to reappear. Soon, everything will come alive, and in my estimation one of the best seasons will be upon us. Maybe it is just time to write this winter off?

Remember folks for this newsletter to be a success, we need your help. Please send weather related information to Bill, to be put in the newsletter, to help to make it a success. Bill, is doing a great job with this newsletter, so please let's not let him down.

Till the next time when I talk to you, when spring will officially be here, have a great Weatherfun  Day.

February's Weather
  • Punxsutawney Phil came out from his hole at Gobbler's Knob on Feb 2nd, Groundhog Day, and saw his shadow, meaning 6 more weeks of Winter. Of course most places have had a very mild Winter, so this was not seen as bad news.
  • Jerry celebrated his 60th Birthday on the 17th, and Mother Nature gave him a little snow at night as a present.
  • Finally on the 23rd, artic air started to enter the country. The cold air moved south to Texas and the Gulf coast, setting record low temperatures along the way, and then east to the Atlantic coast by the 27th.
  • The drought along the East Coast continued as rainfall/snowfall was below normal once again.
  • Several members were ill or had accidents this month. Luckily this is a short month and everyone is on the mend.
