I have been "on leave" from this blog for about eight days now. I wish I could say that it was because I was being lazy or because the weather has been nice and boring.
My Dad passed away on Wednesday morning, March 11, 2009. There is a post on here dated March 13, but I preposted it (which is the first time I ever did that) on the 9th.
I have been grieving a lot over the past week but am making progress emotionally and will soon be back to regular posting. My Dad always had a habit of downplaying forecasts for major weather events, especially snow. Living in Huntsville, Alabama, usually that made sense. But, I will never forget how he expected "no accumulation" for the Blizzard of 1993.
On February 28, my Dad made one final forecast against snow. I asked him that night if he thought we would see any accumulating snow. He said "no". We saw snow!
I have been posting about Alabama weather on this blog since April 2006. Here you will find my observations, information provided by the NWS, links to quality weather information from other sources, and historical weather data. Please "follow" me on Twitter and join my "fan" page on Facebook. Twitter and Facebook posts are usually more current/breaking news. I appreciate your visit. Enjoy and come back soon. Thank you!
