About this blog

This is where you will find all of the "Weather on This Date" post. These post take a historical look at notable past weather events that occurred on a given date.  For the winter season I do have some images and data as it pertains to snow, so that is one of the seasonal changes that you'll see within a post.  These post are actually created using the old blog site (yes, it's still being used!) and posted here via a RSS feed. 

I hope you enjoy.
