NEWSLETTER SEPTEMBER 2003
|Welcome to the September issue of the WEATHERFUN Newsletter|
Greetings, fellow Weatherfun members. |
Well, here we are the beginning of September, and most if not all our children and grandchildren are back in school. We have just completed our very successful Second Weatherfun Reunion and are making plans for our third reunion, and what is starting to look like our biggest reunion yet.
What can I say about this year's reunion that I have not already said. It was our most successful reunion yet, and a grand time was had by all.
We had several family activities, and also several successful weather related activities. Some of the highlights were a visit to Blue Hill Weather Observatory, and also a visit to NBC TV 10 WJAR TV studio and weather center. Our tour guide weekend meteorologist Bill Gile did a fine job in giving us a tour of not only the TV studio but also the weather center. He also let us try out hand at the Blue Wall and try forming our own forecast for this area. It was a tour that I know I will never forget. We also had our grand finale cookout at our home here in Warren. We had two new members join us for the first time this year. Carolyn Eagan who put on a presentation of her long range forecasting. Also Richard from Cape Cod who got a little lost on his way to my home but finally did make it safely. Bill put on a presentation on his visit to the Strom Prediction Center, along with his famous Weather Quiz. Lynn talked about her work with the NWS, and a small talk by me on my visit to a Hurricane Hunter Plane, and also my meeting Max Mayfield of the Hurricane Center of Miami Florida. As you can see we had quite the evening, and you sure want to plan on attending next year's reunion. It promises to be quite the event.
The hurricane season up to now has not been very active, but as I write this we now have Hurricane Fabian going and TS Grace. So, it looks like we are about to get very active with the hurricane season. As you all know the peak of the season is in September and October, and we are well on our way. I think the next few weeks are going to prove quite interesting.
Please enjoy the rest of your summer. Keep an eye to the sky, but above all stay safe.
Remember this is your newsletter, so please be sure to support it as much as possible.
Kill Devil Hills, NC
