Happy National Weatherperson’s Day!

To many of us, the weather forecast is how we decide what clothes to put on, if we really want to go for a walk, or if we need to leave earlier than normal to safely get to work.  Today is National Weatherperson’s Day. It commemorates the birth of one of America’s first weathermen, John Jeffries, who started writing down his weather observations in 1774. The science of weather or the people working with that science aren’t things I normally think about even though I check the forecast every day, but since it’s their day, let’s celebrate with some weather-related books.

I used to have a favorite weatherman and one night, at a late movie showing, I saw him and asked for his autograph. I think he was confused, but he nicely signed the back of a random business card I had in my purse. Do you have/did you have a favorite weatherperson? If so, maybe thank them (or think nice thoughts about them) for letting you know if you’ll see the sun today.

    My husband is my favorite weatherperson! He’s studied weather as a hobby for as long as I’ve known him, and a couple years ago he became NOAA’s Official Weather Observer in Chalk Hill. And now that I know he has his own holiday, I’ll have to do something special for him!
