Test Your Weather History Knowledge

By Jason Samenow

Are you a weather buff, a history buff, or both? The Weather Channel program "When the Weather Changed History" which had its debut last week, will air its second episode this Sunday at 9pm (ET).

It has set up a new interactive Web site hosted by "Storm Tracker" Jim Cantore, featuring an interactive quiz that includes video questions and a speed round. I know a thing or two about the weather, but was a pretty average history student, and scored 6/10. Take the quiz, and let us know how you did.

For you Cantore fans, you can send a personalized email message to someone you know from Mr. Storm Tracker himself promoting the program.

4/10! I should be too embarrassed to post it.

Hello again, all my friends!!

The hype from the NAM is over(for now) regarding the system Sun./Mon but the GFS has shifted slightly west. As I have been repeating for the past two days, don't get excited, the parameters are not there for this system.

For those who are resigned to the Non-Winter of 07-08, remember what I said around the New Year. "There will be many surprises before April 1". A major pattern change begins next week that will result in cold and unsettled weather. We may receive our first widespread Winter Storm before the end of next week.

Why are you promoting the Weather Channel? Don't tell me that the Post has bought a piece of it? They have gone from a very informative channel to one of the worst on cable. They now appeal to the same type of person who would be interested in the latest news on Brittany Spears or others of her type. The only reason that I would watch the Weather Channel now is if a major hurricane was threatening the United States.

Right on! Check my flash from 9:17 on the previous post.

If we get a little white stuff down here in Waynesboro tomorrow night I'll try to boot a little up 340 your way!!

I am very disappointed about missing all but 12 minutes of the Battle of the Bulge. MY UNCLES WERE THERE AND SOME OF MY MOTHER'S FRIENDS, ALSO. Every time I saw the t.v. ad, the times were different or were Eastern and when we matched our time to it (Central) we still could not find it. Then we gave up. Finally, I flipped the station and we saw a little. Please E-MAIL me the program listing, because the weather station is not listed in the t.v. guide or newspaper. ADDRESS

Hello, of course I came to visit your site and thanks for letting me know about it.
I just read this post and wanted to say it is full of number one resources. Some I am familiar with. For those who don't know these other sites they are in for a treat as there is a lot to learn there.
