Rotary Last Week – October 21

“Batten down the hatches, break out the long John’s and stock up on the firewood this winter” was the message that guest speaker Jim Witt, WHUD Meteorologist seemed to be conveying as he displayed a 19 Yr. Calender on weather patterns. These patterns, which are determined by the Moon, the planets and ocean temperatures, (La Nina & El Nino,

hot & cold) seem to be very predictable, allowing for 82% accuracy in long-range forecasts.
