NEWSLETTER JUNE 2002
|Welcome to the June issue of the WEATHERFUN Newsletter|
Hello Weatherfun members. Well, here we are with the June newsletter. I cannot believe how time is flying by. Here it is already June. Of course the big thing about June is the opening of the 2002 Hurricane Season. As you know we have even had some activity before the June 1st opening.|
If you have already read Dr. Gray's forecast for this season you know that he is forecasting some major storms for the East coast. As most of you know I have lived through a hurricane. Hurricane Carol. If you have visited our new website, and read my opening article, you know that this nasty lady from the South called Carol is the main factor that got me started in weather observing.
Living right near the water when Carol hit, and still living fairly close to the water, there is one thing that still amazes me. Everyone has been warned not to build too close to the water front, but we still have people who are building, or have rebuilt very close to the water's edge. Some of these people are the same people who lost everything in Carol. What does it take for us to know enough, to stay away from these very dangerous areas? We have been warned to stay away from these areas. Yet I travel through my own town and see some very expensive homes that have been build, or are being build right at the water's edge. Is it the lack of such a storm as Carol hitting their area, that makes them go so close to the water's edge?
I wish everyone would think twice about building so close, and would listen to our government officials who have warned about doing such a thing, and stay away from these dangerous areas. They are not only putting their investment in danger, but also their lives, and the lives of someone else who would have to go and rescue them if danger arose.
What do you think about our new website folks? I hope you have taken the time to visit it, look it over good, and even post to our site. Remember this is our site, and to maintain it, we need your help. Why not post a weather related article to it, or a website from your state? Or, how about a mug shot of you, and a family member? Believe me, it does not hurt at all. If I can do it, and Weather Dog Buffy. You can also post a picture of yourself, and let the Weatherfun family see what you look like. That way we can put a picture to the name that we talk to regularly. Enjoy the website, and please post, and help out with it as much as possible.
Enjoy the good weather of June, and I will see you again, just before the 4th of July.
