|Hello, Bill from Long Island doing "Jerry's Words" this month due to Jerry's Father being in the hospital.|
Spring is in full swing around the country, which means Tornado Alley is active. April was a very busy month, plus a rather unusual tornado on the Texas/Mexico border that resulted in 10 deaths in the two countries. April showers fell in record amounts for many areas of the mid-Atlantic to New England, while the southeast suffered from drought that caused several wildfires in Georgia.
June 1st is the beginning of the Hurricane Season. Early predictions call for an active season. Everyone in areas where hurricanes could hit should be preparing now for a hurricane, not when it's about to hit.
Jerry has been in touch with the motel regarding this year's Reunion. He'll be sending out the information in early May. Plans are being made now for the events. The dates for the Reunion are July 12th-15th, although some members will be arriving on the 10th. So now is the time to schedule your vacation to come to the Reunion. A fine time will be had. You'll meet other WEATHERFUN members, take part in great events, maybe win some prizes, have great food, see snow in July and overall have a great time. We also talk about the weather, our favorite subject. So tell the boss that you need those dates off and start packing now.
Pa get well. We need you at the Reunion.

The El Nino developed so quickly that from June to December 1997, a record high for sea surface temperatures in the eastern Pacific was set every month, rising to 83-84 degrees Fahrenheit, 7 degrees above normal.
It was not until the easterly trade winds, which had reversed in 1997, abruptly returned to near normal strength in mid-May 1998 that the cold subsurface waters were drawn upward. When that happened, sea surface temperatures plummeted 14 degrees during one 30-day period, marking an end to the El Nino.
