NEWSLETTER MARCH 2007
issue of the WEATHERFUN Newsletter
|Welcome to the March issue of the Weatherfun Newsletter. |
This being March let me also wish you a HAPPY SPRING. Yes, March 1st is the metrological beginning of spring so welcome to spring. Come June 1st I will also welcome you to the first day of summer. March came in like a lion in the Rhode Island area with 1.91 inches of rain, and a lot of flooding in several areas. The town of Bristol to my south had several roads closed due to flooding and many basements were also flooded with firemen pumping out basements for a few days.
As you know snow wise it has not been a very good winter for snow lovers. Here in Rhode Island we are around 24 inches below normal with only receiving so far around 4.25 inches of snow at my weather station. Way below normal. As Bill would say the fat lady is about to go on stage and sing her song due to the fact that we are running out of time in the snow department. But keep in mind here at my weather station I have received snow as late as May 9th with 9 inches of snow falling on that date.
Crocus are starting to pop and the robins have returned and many more signs of spring are also here, so think spring folks.
Our next big event is the 2007 Weatherfun Family Reunion. As I type this we are working on plans for this year's reunion, our theme and events. Very shortly all of you will be receiving a notice about this year's reunion and a questioner. This year's reunion will be held July 12th to July 15th so why not make plans now to attend one grand time where we will have plenty of weather activities, visit area of interest and above all plenty of good food. My suggestion is to leave your diet at home folks, because we have some very good Rhode Island food planned this year. Please if you have any suggestions on the reunion please feel free to contact Bill, Lynn, or myself with your suggestions. Let's make this year the best reunion yet. As the man says on TV folks, and he will for the last time this summer COME ON DOWN FOR A GRAND TIME.
Remember folks, this is your newsletter. If you have any ideas or articles that you would like to see in next months issue please feel free to send it to Bill or myself and we will see that it is added to the newsletter.
Remember we are now going into the severe weather season with tornado's and severe thunderstorms, please stay safe and keep an eye to the sky and remember that there is always a Weatherfun member here. If you need an up date on weather or radar scope please feel free to contact one of us.
Till next month enjoy your spring stay safe and keep an eye to the sky.
