Welcome to the March issue of the WEATHERFUN Newsletter

Words From Jerry
Well, folks here we are with the March Weatherfun Newsletter. Another month gone, but this month as you know is Jerry's month. Yes, spring is just around the corner, and this makes for Jerry's kind of weather. Here in the Northeast March came in like a lamb, but will it go out like a lion? Only time will tell, and I will let you know that answer in the April Newsletter.

As you know plans are in the making for the Third Weatherfun Reunion to be held July 15th to the 18th. in and around the Rhode Island and S. Eastern Mass. area. One of the highlights this year will be the visit of the Tall Ships. This will be a great attraction and some members are even planning on coming into Rhode Island a little early to take advantage of the Tall Ships. This year headquarters will be at the Quality Inn in Somerset, Mass. Further details will be sent out on a weekly basis.

WEATHERFUN SLOGAN: As you know we had a contest for the official Weatherfun Slogan. Well, after a very hard job of choosing the winning slogan, Don from Pascagoula, MS came in with the winning entry of: All the weather that's fit to watch, Even if it is not fit to be out in!  This slogan will be used on all Weatherfun correspondence, and also on our website. Good job Don.

WEATHERFUN LOGO: Now that we have our slogan how about a Weatherfun Logo? Yes, why not put your thinking caps back on and come up with an Official Weatherfun Logo? Here is the URL for this contest:  WEATHERFUN Logo Check it out folks, and put on your thinking caps and let's get an official logo.

WEATHERFUN WEBSITE: As you know folks our website is currently down and has been down for quite a while now. It has also been up and down repeatedly for sometime now. This being the case I have decided not to renew the website or the domain name. We will in it's place put up a new Weatherfun website. Our new domain name will be: When I first purchase the .net domain name I had wanted .com but at that time it was not available, but since has become available, and we now have the domain name. Bill from Long Island has been working on a new website and has done a great job with it. It is still under construction, but promises to be a great website. Why not check it out at:  Now, Bill tells me that he does his best thinking behind a lawnmower. Well, I don't believe that Bill. You have done a great job with the new website and it looks just great. I would like to thank you right here Bill for all of the work that you are doing on our new domain name and also our website. Check it to folks.

Remember folks the time is now to make plans for the Third Weatherfun Reunion. If you have any ideas that you would like to have on our reunion, please feel free to let me know. Remember this is your newsletter, so please be sure to take part in it, and send any material that you have to Bill.

See you all in April.

Did You Know?


A large thundercloud may hold as much as 150,000 tons of water in the form of raindrops and ice crystals. This water would be enough to fill a pond a mile long, 300 feet wide, and a little over 5 feet deep.
