On This Day in Wx History
1990 – Thunderstorms developing along a warm front produced severe weather from southeast Iowa to central Indiana and north central Kentucky. Thunderstorms produced wind gusts to 65 mph at Fort Knox, Kentucky, and hail two inches in diameter west of Lebanon, Indiana. Evening thunderstorms over central Oklahoma deluged Guthrie with 4.5 inches of rain.
9 Days Until Spring
Almanac for Yesterday
Thanks to generous donations and a grant from Volunteer Electric, we raised enough money for tablets for my Meteorologist Mark classes for kids!!! How awesome is that!? In addition to the hands-on activities that we do, these tablets will even further enhance the learning experience! Thank you all so very much!
The last MM class was postponed due to weather. That class has been rescheduled for March 24.

We had a wonderful time yesterday at the Art Circle Public Library yesterday! Local author Rita Reali has offered a portion of her book sales to go to Creative Compassion! That fundraiser began Saturday and continues
for the next three months! It was so nice to meet those of you who came. We raised nearly $70 with this first day of fundraising, which will be so helpful to a family in need of our help! To purchase a book, just go to https://www.amazon.com/Rita-M.-Reali/e/B08CCC355N?fbclid=IwAR3_Dxr1GgOMOzX8XLwU4r2VYRpN_0xACQ5tomsWnxJyFPZxnUgcbLHcPk0.
Our next book signing event will be Saturday, April 30 at GrinderHouse Coffee on Main Street in Crossville, TN. Come out and see us between 11:00-1:00! We sure would love to see ya!
Creative benefits mainly local low-income residents with various housing needs, including rent, utility, or mortgage assistance. Anyone can encounter a time when they need a hand up and Creative is here to help in any way we can! This year alone we’ve helped 12 families with rent/mortgage/utility assistance who have encountered loss of work mainly due to sickness. With the help of donations, we’ll be able to help even more folks,
including our veterans and elderly residents who need our help. For more info on our organization, please see https://ccihomes.org/ and/or let me know if you have any questions or fundraising ideas!
And if you or someone you know needs a high school diploma, just let me know and I’ll help you get that degree! Contact me or someone at the adult education center today to get the diploma you’ve always wanted! http://www.pcsstn.com/home
