Faces in the news
"While growing up, I
became an avid listener during my elementary and junior high years to
the (National) Weather Bureau's five-minute broadcasts. I was impressed
by weather statements that could have resulted only from meticulous
record keeping at the local bureau office. After the office closed in
May 1969, those meticulous records were lost. I undertook the project of
rediscovering them so that Berks County can again be kept informed of
our area's fascinating weather history."
