Last Week’s Program

Jim Witt, WHUD Meteorologist took us into a fascinating tour of the past and provided a glimpse into the future on our weather patterns He described the forces that unite to forms storms, give us mild weather respites, and generally follow the same paths over the centuries. Jim gave us the inside info how he reaches his conclusions. (Snow shovels, anyone?) Another great program by Jim!


Phil Brillante’s Safety Tip

The hands of the clock one hour have lost,

  And spirits wander, dark roads are crossed!

Motorists PLEASE, be on the alert,

  For tiny goblins, with mask and dark shirt.
Read Phil’s brochure, the info it contains

  Makes a safe Halloween; it really explains!

Note: Phil’s tip expands to every night of the year. Though we might not see ghosts & goblins every night, the roads are dark, wet, and contain wet leaves, which are slippery. Have a great, safe Holiday Season!
