MM’s Thursday Weather Forecast for April 28

“Life doesn’t require that we be the best, only that we try our best,” H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

On This Day

1928 – A coastal storm produced tremendous late season snows in the Central Appalachians, including 35 inches at Bayard, West Virginia, 31 inches at Somerset, Pennsylvania, and 30 inches at Grantsville MD. High winds accompanying the heavy wet snow uprooted trees and unroofed a number of homes. The storm caused great damage to fruit trees and wild life.

1937 – 1st commercial flight across Pacific operated by Pan Am.
