MONDAY MARCH 5 - PHILADELPHIA WEATHER BOOK
As best I can tell, the last book written about the weather and climate of this
area was published in 1847. Frankly, it's about time for an update. So, I'm
co-writing a book about this area's weather and climate with another local meteorologist,
Glenn "Hurricane" Schwartz. The book will be published by Temple University Press in 2002.
We're looking for a few great photographs to fill out the book, and inviting you
to be part of the project. Specifically, we're looking for still pictures from
the following events:
(1) Hurricane Floyd
(2) The Blizzard of January 1996
(3) The ice storms from the winter of 1993-94
(4) Any recent hailstorms or tornadoes
(5) The Blizzard of February 1983
If we choose to use your picture in the book, you'll get a free, autographed
copy when it comes out. If you're interested in submitting photographs,
go to the WHYY Franklin Facts Web site where you'll find a link that has
instructions on what to do.
