Welcome to the August Newsletter

Words From Jerry
Welcome fellow Weatherfun members to the August Newsletter.
Now I really cannot believe that it is August. Now where has the time gone?
Well, as you all know this is probably the important month for all of you hurricane watchers. This is the month when we really see the hurricanes and tropical storms start to take shape. I know that it is the month of that monster from the South called Hurricane Carol that started my interest in being a weather watcher (check my founders story on the opening page of our website). So this should be the month that all eyes are to the South. It is also the month and further months that the Tropical Watch 2002 portion of our 800 number will come in handy when you are not near a computer. Check it out when a storm is approaching and you are not near a computer. As usual Richard does a great job on this section.

Plans are coming along on our 1st Weatherfun Reunion. Susan and I hope to announce the Motel that we will be staying at shortly, and also the schedule for the weekend. If you have not made plans to attend our 1st reunion, why not consider it now.

Some of the most beautiful weather of the year can be had in the Rhode Island area in the month of September. Also do not let the phase that we are the mini state scare you off. We have a load of activities and places to visit in the Rhode Island, and nearby S. E. Mass. area. I have lived here for 60 years, and there are places that I have not even see yet. So as that man on TV says: COME ON DOWN.

See you all next month. Please continue to support your newsletter, and enjoy the rest of the summer.

Did You Know?

In the summer of 1993, the Midwest was hit by incredible amounts of rain. As much as one inch of rain fell every six minutes!
