  5. I hope the eclipse comes when I'm ready for my nap...It will get a little darker and make it easier to fall asleep...
  6. I was 17 in 1966 and in September that year the weather person ( I forgot his name ) on CBS channel 2 NY predicted a white Christmas for NYC...It either was the greatest long range forecast for it's time or dumb luck?...The ole farmers almanac predicted an old fashion winter for 66-67...

  11. 1965 was a bad year for Yankee fans like myself and a white Christmas...it was the first time in many years they had a loosing season...Christmas 1965 was rainy and mild...1965 was the first time since 1958 there was no snow the week before Christmas...Christmas 1964 was 69 degrees in Newark N.J. ...snowcover melted Christmas eve...the Yankees lost the world series in 1964 and the white Christmas melted before Santa left for the usa...1964 was the first Christmas without at least one inch of snow on the ground in Philadelphia since 1958...after 1966 I didn't see a heavy snowstorm before Christmas till 1995...2009 was marred by rain Christmas night...otherwise it would have been as good as 1995...
