Welcome to the November, 2004 issue of the WEATHERFUN Newsletter

Words From Jerry
Greetings fellow Weatherfun members and welcome to the November Weatherfun Newsletter.

As I say all the time folks time is just flying by. Here we are with the holiday's on our door step and most important the end of the Hurricane Season.

As you know it has been a very active hurricane season. The main state taking direct hits, and the most damage of course has been the great state of Florida. Some areas of Florida are still cleaning up and will do so for several months to come. Will there be any more storms this season? No one has that answer, but as the days go on we get closer and closer to the November 30th end of this years official Atlantic Hurricane Season.

We are also approaching the winter season and winter snow storms. You all know how much I look forward to snow storms. Some forecasters are forecasting a lot of snow and below normal temperatures for the Northeast. Again time can only answer that, but you know what kind of winter I am looking for. As we did with the tornadoes of spring and hurricanes of summer, I am sure that all of you will be there to help members who are in the path of winter storms.

I also plan on getting back to wrapping up our coverage of our third Weatherfun Reunion. As you know I had to cut short sending out pictures of our reunion because of computer problems. Well, I now have a new computer, and I will shortly get back to coverage of our most recent reunion. As you know we all had a blast at this years reunion, and we look forward to next year reunion. If you have not been to a reunion yet why not plan on attending next years reunion. You will be in for a great time. We hope to announce next years plans shortly.

Susan and I and everyone here at Weatherfun Headquarters would like to wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving.
