MM’s Winter Wx Concerns
Keep in mind that locally higher snow amounts are possible, especially from Monterey to Jamestown.
On This Day in Wx History
1911 – Tamarack, California, reported 451 inches of snow on the ground, a record for the U.S.
1962 – One of the most paralyzing snowstorms in decades produced record March snowfalls in Iowa. Four feet of snow covered the ground at Inwood following the storm.
8 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.
Weekly newsletter subscription proceeds go toward supporting my education outreach, primarily including the monthly class for kids that I teach at TCAT. Try a free sample at https://meteorologistmarkpro.com/ and go to the “Free Sample” link. Subs are only $5 per month or discounted at $50 a year. Each week’s newsletter primarily focuses on the weather of the plateau. This week’s newsletter will focus on the Blizzard of 1993. Stay tuned for that!
The data cutoff for Drought Monitor maps is each Tuesday at 7 a.m. The maps, which are based on analysis of the data, are then released to the public each Thursday at 7:30 a.m. For much more drought info, please follow my link to https://meteorologistmark.com/drought-info/.
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
