MM’s Sat Wx Blog for July 17

MM News

I have added an ecommerce link to the page for when my Meteorologist Mark shirts become available. I am currently waiting on the designer’s plan for the shirt (I stink at designing! ha). This added link, and the changes it brings, may cause disruptions to the look of the site over the coming days. Please excuse the “construction”. Adding an ecommerce link will not only allow me to sell MM clothing, but other MM items as well, including my MM rulers! If you have an idea for something for me to brand and offer you all, just let me know!
