FROM THAT 'WHAT' DEPARTMENT: Have you seen the latest 'Climate Change' (global warming) story? It says and I quote 'Climate Change will force poor women into prostitution.' I was stunned to read this. The entire story can be seen here. I will let you form your own opinion about it, but lets just say I think it is Bovine Scatology.
Weather History for This Date: 1942-Nashville's spring-like day as highs hit 77° *Nice* and in 1896, Cookeville hits 79°
Fun Weather Site of The Day: There are some new things on our Cookeville-Putnam County Emergency Management Agency's weather page. First, a new camera has been installed on the tower at the brand-new Emergency Services building on Willow Avenue. You can see it LIVE by clicking here and the other cool thing is the online information coming from the new Davis VP-2 wired weather station. Thanks to Tyler Smith, EMA Director, Sharon Womack, EMA Assistant Director, and others who made it happen!
